The Democratic States of Mariarty is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.247 billion Mariartyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariarty City. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Mariartyian economy, worth 593 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,918 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mariarty's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
