Awhaiti Kaiatu

The Free Societies of Awhaiti Kaiatu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Councillor with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.664 billion Ngawhaitis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manawhai. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Awhaiti Kaiatuan economy, worth 328 trillion Toals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,515 Toals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, and the nation has unofficially betrayed its values. Crime is totally unknown. Awhaiti Kaiatu's national animal is the Moaka Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Awhaiti Kaiatu is ranked 216,935th in the world and 362nd in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.58 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
