Mach Squan

Population62 million

The Borderlands of Mach Squan is a large, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 62 million Wastelanders live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The thriving Mach Squanian economy, worth 3.48 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 56,071 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 171,286 per year while the poor average 14,227, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', and most people learn to drive on crash courses. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mach Squan's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mach Squan is ranked 29,587th in the world and 27th in Federation of Martian Colonies for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 12.04 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
