|Leader||President Marcellus Hughes|
The Grand Republic of Massena is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Marcellus Hughes with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.36 billion Massenans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.
The very strong Massenan economy, worth 877 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 61,118 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 175,863 per year while the poor average 16,876, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.
Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, and white privilege is a real thing. Crime is moderate. Massena's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
