Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Tyrannical Regime of The Mazur Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Balin with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.432 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 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mazur Imperian economy, worth 417 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 171,643 Imperial Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 682,153 per year while the poor average 29,129, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 7,859th in the world and 458th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 84.64 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
