August de Marmont

The Republic of August de Marmont is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 21.538 billion August de Marmontians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.1%.

The all-consuming August de Marmontian economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 trillion gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,244 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making August de Marmontians any less frightened, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and government-sponsored gallows are being erected by Violetist temples. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. August de Marmont's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

August de Marmont is ranked 40,990th in the world and 1st in Waterloo for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.09 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
