OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 1.552 billion, 1.549 billion of whom are zombies, King Marsupialians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 52%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. 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 24th in The Free Pacific and 114,655th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

King Marsupial is currently considering its options.
