OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 17.291 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 48%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and procrastination is a national sport. 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 3,369th in the Rejected Realms and 121,459th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,553.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
