The Legally Entitled To Professional Courtesy Title of Retired Shark Mod of Mallorea and Riva is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zakath with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.848 billion Mallorea and Rivans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mal Zeth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Mallorea and Rivan economy, worth a remarkable 3,933 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 220,371 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 661,856 per year while the poor average 57,285, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.
Nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, home education can sometimes be a load of bullocks, and the Mallorea and Rivan war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mallorea and Riva's national animal is the narwhal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
