The Bara Loving Free Land of Marimite is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yumi Fukuzawa with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.521 billion Marimiteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marimite City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Marimitean economy, worth a remarkable 7,195 trillion gokigenyous a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 228,278 gokigenyous, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, tourists call Marimitean beach towns "the fine coastline", and the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marimite's national animal is the bara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Marimite is ranked 110,667th in the world and 28th in Anime for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.67 on the Rand Index.
