AnimalMaratabatan Raven

The Republic of Maratabat is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 456 million Maratabatans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sūbangan. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maratabatan economy, worth 53.4 trillion quartas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 117,176 quartas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Maratabat's national animal is the Maratabatan Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maratabat is ranked 39,932nd in the world and 1,973rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,187.83 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
