|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic States of Martonica is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 666 million Martonicans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nucking Futz. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Martonic economy, worth 40.8 trillion Löts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,280 Löts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martonica's national animal is the Krakkan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
