Martelon

Population1.195 billion

CurrencyMartelon Franc

The Republic of Martelon is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 1.195 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, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Martelon economy, worth 101 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 85,240 Martelon Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 5,072nd in the world and 104th in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,751.24 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
