The Corporate Federation of Maritzal
“Together As One”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The Corporate Federation of Maritzal is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Cornelius Crewes with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, anti-smoking policies, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 9.282 billion Maritzalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridian. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Maritzalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,634 trillion Pistas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 391,523 Pistas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, there's no weight to modern politics, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Maritzal's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
