Martian States of America

The Colony of Martian States of America is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 487 million Martian States of Americans 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 6.7%.

The powerhouse Martian States of American economy, worth 38.2 trillion Mars Buxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 78,394 Mars Buxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Martian States of America's national animal is the Rover, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Martian States of America is ranked 187,171st in the world and 6,242nd in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 95 Meters Of Sunlight.
