The Republic of Maddagascar is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 631 million Maddagascarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antananarivo. The average income tax rate is 5.4%.

The sizeable but inefficient Maddagascarian economy, worth 26.6 trillion dollors 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, broadly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. 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 42,158 dollors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Maddagascar's national animal is the rino.

Maddagascar is ranked 158,864th in the world and 221st in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Drug Use, scoring 51.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
