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 renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.127 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, socially-minded 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Mascarenan economy, worth 308 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,912 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, the study of medicine is popular throughout Mascarena, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 2,817th in Lazarus and 110,398th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -103 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
