Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Red Mars- is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 129 million Martians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Martian economy, worth 2.60 trillion Xlots 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 20,184 Xlots, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Mars-'s national animal is the Mountain wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Mars- is ranked 58,745th in the world and 3,115th in the Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.17 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
