Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Democratic Republic of Esperanceland is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.062 billion Esperancelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Esperancelandian economy, worth 900 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 111,658 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Esperanceland's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Esperanceland is ranked 120th in the South Pacific and 5,130th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6 on the Hayek Index.
