The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 33.566 billion Marmiedonians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marmietown. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Marmiedonian economy, worth an astonishing 11,994 trillion Crypto-donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 357,344 Crypto-donuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marmiedon's national animal is the great cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felineism.

Marmiedon is ranked 214,534th in the world and 7,737th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -30.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
