The Queen's State of Mahoosuc is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.23 billion Mahoosucians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.
The very strong Mahoosucian economy, worth 853 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 46,837 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 454,123 per year while the poor average 233, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mahoosuc's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
