The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.108 billion Marmotienians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, cities are engulfed by smog, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime is well under control, 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 264th in Europe and 96,124th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
