The Democratic States of Mariarty is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.425 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 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mariartyian economy, worth 613 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,688 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, books are so highly regarded in Mariarty that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. 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 46,341st in the world and 1,606th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
