Martian States of America

The Colony of Martian States of America is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its suspicion of poets, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 516 million Martian States of Americans 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 6.7%.

The powerhouse Martian States of American economy, worth 40.5 trillion Mars Buxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 78,405 Mars Buxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Martian States of America's national animal is the Rover, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Martian States of America is ranked 65,825th in the world and 2,105th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,880.43 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
