Mad-2

The Republic of Mad-2 is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 5.635 billion Mad-2ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mad-2ian economy, worth 214 trillion $$s a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,977 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mad-2's national animal is the Death's-head hawkmoth.

Mad-2 is ranked 50,227th in the world and 1st in Madrigal for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,957.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
