OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of Mameluco is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Fernando Alonso with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.808 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matrix City. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

All guns must be registered, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mameluco's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the mameluco.

Mameluco is ranked 310th in Europe and 100,916th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
