Population506 million


The Republic of Marsoupial is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 506 million Marsoupialians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The strong Marsoupialian economy, worth 33.6 trillion Kangaroos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 66,379 Kangaroos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 510,435 per year while the poor average 2,311, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Marsoupial's national animal is the Koala.

Marsoupial is ranked 32,281st in the world and 2nd in Marsupials for Most Devout, with 901.19 Prayers Per Hour.
