Malandrin

The Republic of Malandrin is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic population of 141 million Malandrians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.5%.

The powerhouse Malandrinian economy, worth 12.1 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 85,619 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,773 per year while the poor average 21,345, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, economists claim no news is good news, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Malandrin's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Malandrin is ranked 111,918th in the world and 830th in 10000 Islands for Largest Governments, scoring 12.49 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
