OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 17.334 billion 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 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and the nation leads the Rejected Realms in per capita stalking. 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 1,742nd in the Rejected Realms and 56,910th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 67 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
