The Kingdom of Marinne is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Heidi Buchanan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, devout population of 8.212 billion Marinneans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ihara. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marinnean economy, worth 778 trillion Curoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,852 Curoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference, crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, and the study of medicine is popular throughout Marinne. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinne's national animal is the Cao, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mariannity.

Marinne is ranked 5,800th in the world and 24th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 26 valid endorsements.
