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 punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.781 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 511 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,405 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

M-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, and bris parties are all the rage. 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 68,099th in the world and 2,915th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 402 billion Standard Monetary Units.
