OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.297 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 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 2nd in The Free Pacific and 5,127th in the world for Best Weather, with 186 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
