The Free Land of Massacia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 370 million Massacians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Massacian economy, worth 44.2 trillion Pebbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,481 Pebbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Massacia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, people's charity begins and ends at home, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Massacia's national animal is the Nonexistent Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
