Soap tips

The Holy Republic of Soap tips is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Bill with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 994 million Soap tipsians 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of yes. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Soap tipsian economy, worth 53.6 trillion soaps 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 53,935 soaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soap tips's national animal is the bill wurtz, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Soap tips is ranked 45,363rd in the world and 42nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Extreme, scoring 28.52 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
