The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.772 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 11,482 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 361,404 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, uploading purple prose to social media earns a place on a government watchlist, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. 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 222,502nd in the world and 10,054th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -15.81 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
