Matak Tribes

The Federation of Matak Tribes is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 351 million Mataks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Matak economy, worth 8.81 trillion wood coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 25,113 wood coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matak Tribes's national animal is the red hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Matak Tribes is ranked 106,263rd in the world and 2,883rd in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 68.83955316488 Days.
