The Free Democratic Republic of Mar Mot is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marmot Prime with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, ritual sacrifices, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.648 billion Mar Motians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolechia City. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mar Motian economy, worth 355 trillion standardized banknotes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,365 standardized banknotes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', and government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Marmot Prime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mar Mot's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marmotism.

Mar Mot is ranked 4,422nd in the world and 1st in The Federation for Nudest, with 703.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
