Population8.363 billion

CapitalSection 8


The Dictatorship of Majuria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Farouk with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 8.363 billion Majurians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Section 8. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Majurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion Taris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 173,774 Taris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Section 8 Times is sold out, billions of Taris are being poured into a space program, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Majuria's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Majuria is ranked 212,398th in the world and 4,877th in the West Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -23.41 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
