Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Mazur Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Balin with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.087 billion Mazur Imperians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mazur Imperium City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mazur Imperian economy, worth 329 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 157,765 Imperial Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 768,534 per year while the poor average 18,663, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Imperial Credit charge on their phone bill, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in The Mazur Empire' is a smash hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Mazur Empire's national animal is the Black Mamba, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Mazur.

The Mazur Empire is ranked 128,981st in the world and 5,956th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 16.68018376912 Days.
