Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Mouseria is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 116 million Mouserians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The strong Mouserian economy, worth 8.57 trillion Shiners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 73,891 Shiners, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,478 per year while the poor average 16,588, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Mouseria City as a backdrop, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is relatively low. Mouseria's national animal is the Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mouseria is ranked 21,175th in the world and 1st in Zito Rufia for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
