OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.248 billion King Marsupialians 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 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, euthanasia is legal, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, and highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school. 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 114,339th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
