The Monkey Lovin' Nation of Pygmy Marmoset is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.205 billion Pygmy Marmosetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Pygmy Marmosetian economy, worth 468 trillion minature monkeys 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 21,093 minature monkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pygmy Marmoset's national animal is the pygmy marmoset, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pygmy Marmoset is ranked 173,491st in the world and 21st in Ozzy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 583.75 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
