Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 11.298 billion Mascarenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Bourbon. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 538 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,672 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of Lazarus, Tamara Rivo has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mascarena's national animal is the dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mascarena is ranked 11,039th in the world and 525th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.43 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
