The Martian Democracy

Population91 million

CurrencyMartian Dollar

The United Socialist States of The Martian Democracy is a large, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 91 million Martians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Martian economy, worth 4.72 trillion Martian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 51,903 Martian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, babies are a small but significant export, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and the government has heavily invested in badly drawn monkeys. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Martian Democracy's national animal is the Slime, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Martian Democracy is ranked 257,114th in the world and 9,534th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 55,446 Standard Monetary Units.
