The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 35.342 billion Marmiedonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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. The average income tax rate is 2.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marmiedonian economy, worth an astonishing 12,825 trillion Crypto-donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 362,897 Crypto-donuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, and the government seizes all major gold finds. 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 1,425th in the world and 44th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 212.28 on the Hayek Index.
