The Democratic Republic of Malestedo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Pickly martian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.844 billion Malestedoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malestedonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Malestedoan economy, worth 171 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 92,858 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malestedo's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
