The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.435 billion King Marsupialians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 18th in The Free Pacific and 77,699th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -8 on the Hayek Index.
