Regional Influence: Squire


The People's Dictatorship of Old Mare is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.032 billion Mari 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cosa. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Maricus economy, worth 693 trillion rems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,909 rems, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, the nation is known as the cheapskates of The Communist Bloc, and all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society. Crime is totally unknown. Old Mare's national animal is the fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Old Mare is ranked 7,966th in the world and 170th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Poor Incomes, with 122,662.3 Standard Monetary Units.
