The Monkey Lovin' Nation of Pygmy Marmoset is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.493 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 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Pygmy Marmosetian economy, worth 431 trillion minature monkeys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 21,054 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 68,550th in the world and 12th in Ozzy for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
