The Constitutional Monarchy of Maricoen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Dimitri Morozov with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.069 billion Maricoenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcosberg. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maricoenian economy, worth 387 trillion Kpohas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 187,165 Kpohas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the government has organised a nationwide cull of infected European Bisons, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maricoen's national animal is the European Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Maricoen is ranked 23,579th in the world and 9th in New Eastern Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 291,647 Standard Monetary Units.
