The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 5.903 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Bourbon. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 278 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,124 Mascarenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Mascarenian Dollars each year, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. 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.

Mascarena is ranked 3,349th in Lazarus and 109,143rd in the world for Most Devout, scoring -49 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
