Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 6.25 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 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 292 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,757 Mascarenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, Fort Bourbon spends billions upgrading public transport, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children. 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 2,231st in Lazarus and 57,570th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 74 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
