Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.502 billion Mascarenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 437 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,044 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, school uniforms are compulsory, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 149,676th in the world and 4,983rd in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -25.65 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
