They put state in a database.  World of Warcraft uses Oracle.  EVE uses MS SQL Server.  SOE games use Postgres.  Sun had a project called Darkstar (now RedDwarf) that uses Berkeley DB.

Stuff that's happening live like combat is just in-memory and not at all special.

Not too many MMO shops are forthcoming with their designs, but the EVE folks share quite a bit.  EVE is pretty atypical (it's mostly written in python!) but there's still interesting design insights in there:
