Marinho Islands

Population232 million

CurrencyMarino dollar

The Federal Republic of Marinho Islands is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 232 million Marinos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Marino economy, worth 17.5 trillion Marino dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,504 Marino dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinho Islands's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marinho Islands is ranked 74,842nd in the world and 2,979th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,759.3 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
