OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of Plaquera is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 20.487 billion Plaquerans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, Max Barry is this year's Miss Plaquera, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaquera's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the human life.

Plaquera is ranked 125th in Gatesville Inc and 112,883rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -47 on the Hayek Index.
