Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Republic of MaximumVolume is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 677 million MaximumVolumeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 74.5%.

The sizeable but inefficient MaximumVolumean economy, worth 24.6 trillion fists a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 36,294 fists, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, and MaximumVolume City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MaximumVolume's national animal is the Parakeet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

MaximumVolume is ranked 138,033rd in the world and 2,773rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6.32 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
