OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of 180 Flip is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.978 billion 180 Flipians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

180 Flip is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, education and welfare spending are on the rise, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 180 Flip's national animal is the Flip, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the 180.

180 Flip is ranked 1st in Baldr and 55,814th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -20 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
