Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.814 billion SteamEngineans 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of James-Watt-City. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but sluggish SteamEnginean economy, worth a remarkable 1,294 trillion firegolds a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,358 firegolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, concussed firedrakeball players cannot remember their lineup position, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SteamEngine's national animal is the firedrake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SteamEngine is ranked 3rd in Deutschland and 6,833rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 18 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
