The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 35.878 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized 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 3.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marmiedonian economy, worth an astonishing 13,196 trillion Crypto-donuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 367,803 Crypto-donuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, cheese lovers have a case of the bleus, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 569th in the world and 22nd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 43,106.46 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
