Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.952 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 466 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,839 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and the Mascarenan basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market. 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 15,515th in the world and 837th in Lazarus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 82.53 Effective Tax Rate.
