OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.895 billion King Marsupialians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 59%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown. King Marsupial's national animal is the koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the eucaliptus leaf.

King Marsupial is ranked 6th in The Free Pacific and 12,002nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 1 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
