The Corporate Federation of Maritzal
“Together As One”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The Corporate Federation of Maritzal is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Cornelius Crewes with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.799 billion Maritzalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Maritzalian economy, worth a remarkable 4,166 trillion Pistas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 425,236 Pistas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,468,930 per year while the poor average 90,030, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.
The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Maritzalian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, mandatory patriotic themes make even the newest movies feel like remakes, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and everybody's got wood thanks to President Cornelius Crewes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maritzal's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
