Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ancient and Loyal Republic of South Boston Irishmen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Michael Collins with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.609 billion South Boston Irishmenians 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin City. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient South Boston Irishmenian economy, worth 847 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,307 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Boston Irishmen's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Boston Irishmen is ranked 299th in United Kingdom and 139,895th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -18 on the Hayek Index.
