OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holiday Paradise of Port Louis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Himself with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 10.917 billion Port Louisians 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 Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Louis. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, elections have been outlawed, the government seizes all major gold finds, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Port Louis's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the mauritian rupee.

Port Louis is ranked 2nd in pacific and 19,113th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
