The Dangly ⚾⚾ of The Mariners of Seattle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ichiro with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.66 billion Seattle Mariners enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kickback City Kingdome. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seattleite Marineasque economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion Nintendo Points a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 241,226 Nintendo Points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps stinks, the roads are virtually falling apart, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and major boxing matches are held in government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Mariners of Seattle's national animal is the Mariner Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Mariners of Seattle is ranked 14,173rd in the world and 445th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 76.28 quips per hour.
