OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.268 billion Marmotienians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Defence and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murmelhausen. The average income tax rate is 80%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Artists are pillars of society, Marmotien's market has been colonised by the corporations of rich countries, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marmotien's national animal is the Marmot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Murmel.

Marmotien is ranked 27th in Europe and 2,377th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 44 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
