The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate population of 3.949 billion 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 Religion & Spirituality 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 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, Marmotien is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 335th in Europe and 108,685th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -9 Whatever.
