The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The basket case FashSmash Force 005ian economy, worth 74.5 billion Smashes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal.
