Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.213 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 344 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,788 Mascarenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. 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 2,860th in Lazarus and 104,817th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 10 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
