Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.316 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 394 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,293 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, school uniforms are compulsory, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. 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 60,478th in the world and 2,686th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 30,370.13 Standard Monetary Units.
