The Republic of MaleciaNS is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 9.31 billion MaleciaNSians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 93.3%.
The strong MaleciaNSian economy, worth 333 trillion Tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 35,792 Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
MaleciaNS's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MaleciaNS's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
