Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Surprising Existence of Klaatu is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 6.879 billion Klaatuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Klaatuan economy, worth 197 trillion nons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 28,779 nons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Klaatu's national animal is the ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Klaatu is ranked 1st in Vectis and 118,381st in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -0.28 Net Tourists per hour.
