The Island Imperium of Markanite is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 27.586 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 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Markanitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,119 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 76,833 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Markanitean emissions at all, television executives are interested in turning President Mark's zany home life into a sitcom, kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history, and the nation's WA representatives have received a very public sacking after Markanite allowed its WA membership to lapse. 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 66,534th in the world and 577th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,324.39 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
