The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.492 billion Mascarenans 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, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Bourbon. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, extreme political groups are outlawed, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Mascarenian Dollars each year, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mascarena's national animal is the dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Mascarenian Dollar.
