Mal McNews

Population535 million



The Free Land of Mal McNews is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its public floggings, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 535 million Mal McNewsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citytownplace. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mal McNewsian economy, worth 43.5 trillion monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 81,345 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, card collectors duel to the death, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mal McNews's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Mal McNews is ranked 27,261st in the world and 1,279th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,739.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
