The Millennium

The Holy Empire of The Millennium is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 270 million Millennians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Millennian economy, worth 4.93 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 18,269 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the nation is designated as a welfare recipient under Skandilundian law, there are no more heroes any more, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Millennium's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Millennium is ranked 204,900th in the world and 9,213th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -95.27 on the Hayek Index.
