The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 33.091 billion Marmiedonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marmietown. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Marmiedonian economy, worth an astonishing 12,203 trillion Crypto-donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 368,791 Crypto-donuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and international tensions are high as Marmiedon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. 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 511th in the world and 8th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 14,545.62 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
