The Republic of Mardom
“A career in politics is like arguing about spaghetti.”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Squire
The Republic of Mardom is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rosy Waggle with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.633 billion Mardomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Micester. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Mardomian economy, worth 248 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 68,534 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mardom's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Congregation of the Five Gods.
