Marrabuk Hall

Population1.417 billion


The Dictatorship of Marrabuk Hall is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.417 billion Marrabuk Halls are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Marrabuk Hallian economy, worth 11.8 trillion Marrabuks 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, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 8,295 Marrabuks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marrabuk Hall's national animal is the Donkey.

Marrabuk Hall is ranked 115,028th in the world and 14th in The Sportsbook for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 838.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
