OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Bara Loving Free Land of Marimite is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.971 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 capital of Marimite has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. 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 18th in the world for Best Weather, with 2,915 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
