Location: the South Pacific



Population1.858 billion



The Democratic Republic of Mapico is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leafy with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 1.858 billion Mapicoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rain. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mapicoan economy, worth 290 trillion Maps a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,488 Maps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mapico's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mapico is ranked 35,790th in the world and 1,301st in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,808.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
