Macaco Forte

Population350 million

The Free Land of Macaco Forte is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 350 million Macaco Forteans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Macaco Fortean economy, worth 16.5 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,140 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fruit pickers with degrees in Bison psychology are a common sight, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', and postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Macaco Forte's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Macaco Forte is ranked 80,154th in the world and 2,328th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.43 Weapons Per Person.
