Land of Mari

Population2.389 billion

The Republic of Land of Mari is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.389 billion Land of Marians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Land of Marian economy, worth 389 trillion Old Bays a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 162,986 Old Bays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Land of Marian flag qualifies you for citizenship, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime is totally unknown. Land of Mari's national animal is the Crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Land of Mari is ranked 6,973rd in the world and 212th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 109.89 quips per hour.
