The Democratic States of Mariarty is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.407 billion Mariartyians 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 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Mariartyian economy, worth 489 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 reasonably common. Average income is 76,385 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. 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.
