The Democratic States of Mariarty is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.556 billion Mariartyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariarty City. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mariartyian economy, worth 636 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,179 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mariarty's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Mariarty is ranked 136,270th in the world and 5,149th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 51.11 Workforce Participation Rate.
