The City State of Marmiedon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marmaduke with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.261 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 11,323 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 362,214 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The children of Marmiedon are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. 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 205,839th in the world and 9,991st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.91 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
