Holoratus 23

Population422 million

Animalblack hawk

The Allied States of Holoratus 23 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 422 million Holoratus 23ians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Holoratus 23ian economy, worth 4.21 trillion regions 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, Basket Weaving, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 9,986 regions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holoratus 23's national animal is the black hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holoratus 23 is ranked 143,902nd in the world and 1,280th in Devide by Zero for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 45.02 on the Hayek Index.
