The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 567 million, 562 million of whom are zombies, 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Bourbon. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

An enormous health awareness programme is underway, people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and extreme political groups are outlawed. 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, and its currency is the Mascarenian Dollar.

Mascarena is ranked 3,333rd in Lazarus and 109,861st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Mascarena is currently considering its options.

People: 5,146,682

Zombies: 562,185,070

Dead: 4,857,077,719

Survival Rate: 0.09%
