The People's Dictatorship of Old Mare is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.772 billion Mari are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cosa. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Maricus economy, worth 373 trillion rems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,624 rems, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
