The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate population of 4.002 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 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, discarded pennies litter the streets, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Marmotien, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. 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 275th in Europe and 74,631st in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 53 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
