Mad-1

The Watchfires of Mad-1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 13.113 billion Mad-1ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mad-1ian economy, worth 600 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,784 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mad-1's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mad-1 is ranked 75,363rd in the world and 1st in Madrid for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 299.51 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
