The Kingdom of Marinne is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Heidi Buchanan with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.55 billion Marinneans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ihara. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marinnean economy, worth 693 trillion Curoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,836 Curoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Marinnean as 'your finger, you fool', rumor has it that Heidi Buchanan has won three lotteries in a row, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and Marinne's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinne's national animal is the Cao, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mariannity.

Marinne is ranked 17,657th in the world and 80th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 85.04 on the Human Development Index.
