OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 5.669 billion Marmotienians 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.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murmelhausen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Marmotienian economy, worth 572 trillion Murmels a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 101,064 Murmels, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, military funding has been stripped back, citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, and teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill. Crime is totally unknown. Marmotien's national animal is the Marmot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Marmotien is ranked 41st in Europe and 11,867th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 46 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
