It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 6.5%.
The frighteningly efficient in Bear Connors Paradisoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,803 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 193,018 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.
Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force.
