Dutch-British Empire

The Empire of Dutch-British Empire is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 189 million Dutch-Britishes 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Dutch-British Empirean economy, worth 6.75 trillion Euros 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. 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 35,715 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, the endangered saltwater humpback Crabs is only seen in captivity programs, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and it's not mass murder when the government does it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dutch-British Empire's national animal is the Crabs, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dutch-British Empire is ranked 194,882nd in the world and 5th in Big Boii Empire for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
