OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of 180 Flip is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its superstitious fear of technology. The compassionate population of 6.486 billion 180 Flipians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 93%, 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.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, the world outside is only known of in folklore, and a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts. 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 3,284th in Lazarus and 104,720th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
