OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Hubble is a massive, devout nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.64 billion Hubbleans 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 Social Welfare, Religion & Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Beef-Based Agriculture.

Organ donation is compulsory, military spending is on the increase, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hubble's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Dollar.

Hubble is ranked 7th in City Ankh Morpork and 63,994th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
