OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.924 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 61%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, meat-eating is frowned upon, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 1st in The Free Pacific and 4,438th in the world for Best Weather, with 188 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
