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 remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.983 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 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 378 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,171 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege Fort Bourbon's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, self-driving cars have been banned, immigrants flood the job queues as discrimination in the workplace makes a staggering comeback, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 142,630th in the world and 4,244th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
