Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population2.269 billion



The Democratic Republic of Mapico is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leafy with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.269 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 80.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mapicoan economy, worth 347 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 common. Average income is an impressive 153,237 Maps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Rain, and babies are increasingly seen as a luxury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 209,210th in the world and 8,123rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -155.71 on the Hayek Index.
