“Forever Strong and True”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Diplomat
Location: The South
The State of Mahaj is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Maharaj with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.24 billion Mahajians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mahar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.
Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the country is constantly under siege trying to protect soccer moms who've settled in occupied territory (Mahaj has found 5 easter eggs), and refugees from other nations are flocking to Mahaj's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Mahaj's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Maahugj Religion, and its currency is the ele.
Mahaj is ranked 8th in The South and 8,073rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 288 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
