Welcome Massello

We welcome The Holy Republic of Massello (, a United Nations member, as the 232nd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Holy Republic of Massello is a tiny, devout nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 6 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass -- juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 45%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Trout Farming.
Voting is compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Massello's national animal is the hawk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.
