Mallorea and Riva

Population20.402 billion

CapitalMal Zeth


The HAVEN't they learnt their lesson about trusting this circling shark of Mallorea and Riva is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zakath with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.402 billion Mallorea and Rivans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mal Zeth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mallorea and Rivan economy, worth a remarkable 4,505 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 220,845 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 729,008 per year while the poor average 50,053, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Zakath signs the laws but abides by none of them, Mallorea and Rivan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, disputed territories across The Joint Systems Alliance are being claimed by Mallorea and Rivan college students, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mallorea and Riva's national animal is the narwhal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Mallorea and Riva is ranked 92,994th in the world and 1st in The Joint Systems Alliance for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,609.97 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
