OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.115 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 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 20th in The Free Pacific and 111,932nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -210 Insults Per Minute (net).
