Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.609 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 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 309 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,793 Mascarenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, extraordinary tribunals try accused financials criminals, and the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Lazarus. 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 1,315th in Lazarus and 47,909th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 78 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
