The Minotauros

Population4.191 billion

The Kingdom of The Minotauros is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 4.191 billion Minotaurosians 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 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Minotaurosian economy, worth 38.7 trillion balls of thread 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 black market in Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 9,238 balls of thread, 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. The Minotauros's national animal is the minotauros.

The Minotauros is ranked 126,997th in the world and 4th in The Local Supermarket for Fattest Citizens, with 9.84 Obesity Rate.
