The Bara Loving Free Land of Marimite is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.148 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, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marimite City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Marimitean economy, worth 606 trillion gokigenyous a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 28,696 gokigenyous, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and citizens must pay to enjoy Marimite's pristine beaches. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

Marimite is ranked 1st in Anime and 744th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 436 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
