Abstract: In this article we develop a theory of the so-called Mumford orbifolds, viz. rigid-analytic orbifolds covered by Mumford curves. General recipe for treating such orbifolds is given. The main result states a necessary and sufficient condition for abstract graphs of groups to be realized as discrete groups for Mumford orbifolds, which is useful for constructing several interesting non-Archimedean discrete groups, such as $p$-adic triangle groups.
