Martelon

The Republic of Martelon is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, devout population of 1.178 billion Martelons are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Martelon economy, worth 99.4 trillion Martelon Francs 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 84,357 Martelon Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martelon's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martelon is ranked 9,297th in the world and 40th in Europe for Most Armed, with 9.39 Weapons Per Person.
