The Free Land of Taxlessia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 481 million Taxlessians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Taxlessian economy, worth 54.5 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,284 bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 590,591 per year while the poor average 11,708, a ratio of 50.4 to 1.

Military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Taxlessia's national animal is the Taxlessian barking scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Taxlessia is ranked 72,290th in the world and 11th in Greater Necanica for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,730.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
