The Federal Republic of Mascarena is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tamara Rivo with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 12.396 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mascarenan economy, worth 590 trillion Mascarenian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,643 Mascarenian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, Max Barry finally has time for writing books after NationStates was recently outlawed, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. 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 48,609th in the world and 1,569th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
