The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 5.077 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.
'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Marmotien's radio stations, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, extreme political groups are outlawed, and the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Marmotien are highly popular tourist destinations. 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.
