The Bara Loving Free Land of Marimite is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.749 billion Marimiteans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marimite City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Marimite's radio stations, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, citizens must pay to enjoy Marimite's pristine beaches, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marimite's national animal is the bara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the gokigenyou.

Marimite is ranked 1st in Anime and 728th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 433 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
