The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.5 billion Marmiedonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. 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 11,443 trillion dollars 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 363,295 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the population has had bad experiences with hoes, the nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of great cats and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. 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 201,005th in the world and 8,787th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
