The Democratic States of Mariarty is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.997 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariarty City. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mariartyian economy, worth 774 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,038 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes. 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.

Mariarty is ranked 246,497th in the world and 10,753rd in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -13.86 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
