Martelon

The Republic of Martelon is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 1.344 billion Martelons are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Martelon economy, worth 125 trillion Martelon Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 93,328 Martelon Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martelon's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martelon is ranked 14,506th in the world and 124th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,318.36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
