Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Most Serene Republic of Marmotien is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 6.385 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 enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murmelhausen. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marmotienian economy, worth 658 trillion Murmels a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,064 Murmels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

All guns must be registered, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and the only places to see Marmots now are at local zoos. Crime is totally unknown. Marmotien's national animal is the Marmot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Marmotien is ranked 327th in Europe and 130,860th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
