San Mazer

Population10.358 billion

LeaderTito Rodriguez

CurrencySan Mazer Dollar

The Republic of San Mazer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tito Rodriguez with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.358 billion San Mazerians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esteiro. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient San Mazerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,889 trillion San Mazer Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 375,485 San Mazer Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Esteiro. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. San Mazer's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

San Mazer is ranked 227,487th in the world and 5,934th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1022.79 on the Hayek Index.
