Red Maw

Population3.981 billion


The Guardian of Red Maw is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.981 billion Red Mawians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Red Mawian economy, worth 57.8 trillion silmarils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,518 silmarils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, and the werewolf is a protected species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Maw's national animal is the werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Maw is ranked 169,577th in the world and 1st in Die Schwarze Sonne for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 665.04 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
