The Republic of Malanasia

“The World Capital for Arson-Related Deaths!”

Category: Anarchy

Regional Influence: Unproven

Location: The North Pacific



Population16.136 billion



The Republic of Malanasia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.136 billion Malanasians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and International Aid are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swildie. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Malanese economy, worth a remarkable 4,132 trillion ounces a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 256,090 ounces, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,842,196 per year while the poor average 11,466, a ratio of 160 to 1.

One lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Malanasia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is freethought.

Malanasia is ranked 80,642nd in the world and 3,802nd in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,011.29 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
