Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Social Republic of South Mauristan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.459 billion Mauristanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 74.9%.

The sizeable but inefficient South Mauristanian economy, worth 94.2 trillion Marian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 38,294 Marian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

All alcohol is banned, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout South Mauristan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Mauristan's national animal is the Martial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

South Mauristan is ranked 137,227th in the world and 4,538th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 5.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
