The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a massive, safe nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.709 billion Marmotienians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Government policy is dictated by a major religion, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is totally unknown, 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 53rd in Europe and 5,894th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 690 Net Tourists per hour.
