Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Matahari is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sathyanegara with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.592 billion Mataharians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suryakarta. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The powerhouse Mataharian economy, worth 709 trillion Tharis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 126,965 Tharis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matahari's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Matahari is ranked 2,332nd in the world and 32nd in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.77 Years.
