OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.633 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 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.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, refugees from other nations are flocking to King Marsupial's border, anti-government web sites are springing up, and large areas of King Marsupial are not accessible by the public. 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 26th in The Free Pacific and 116,762nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
