Republic of Compassion

The Commonwealth of Republic of Compassion is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 761 million Republic of Compassionians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Republic of Compassionian economy, worth 29.0 trillion Dongers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,162 Dongers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege Republic of Compassion City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Compassion's national animal is the Rimmed Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of Compassion is ranked 171,092nd in the world and 5,086th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 12.84 on the Hayek Index.
