The Bara Loving Free Land of Marimite is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Yumi Fukuzawa with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.421 billion Marimiteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marimite City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Marimitean economy, worth a remarkable 7,979 trillion gokigenyous a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 213,244 gokigenyous, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People boast about their low income on their dating profiles, the official Marimitean Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and most citizens in Marimite are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marimite's national animal is the bara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Marimite is ranked 77,716th in the world and 19th in Anime for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
