The Socialist State of Ma Raque is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Travis Ritchie with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.648 billion Ma Raqueans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mecca. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.
The all-consuming Ma Raquean economy, worth 663 trillion shalams a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,465 shalams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ma Raque's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
