Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queen's State of Fort Rae is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 13.337 billion Fort Raeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 55.8%.

The Fort Raean economy, worth 498 trillion betales 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, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 37,373 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fort Rae's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fort Rae is ranked 1st in the Arctic Ocean and 61,030th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7 on the Hayek Index.
