The Kingdom of Marbamaga is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arthur Lannister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.255 billion Marbamagans 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vivec. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Marbamagan economy, worth a remarkable 1,309 trillion Galleons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 209,336 Galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marbamaga's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marbamaga is ranked 1,372nd in the world and 85th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.04 on the Human Development Index.
