The Island Imperium of Markanite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 27.566 billion Markaniteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Markanitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,086 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,697 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to President Mark's wardrobe, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, and formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markanite's national animal is the White Marked Tree Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Markanite is ranked 261,361st in the world and 1,219th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.84 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
