Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Kingdom of Taboa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Maximillian with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 7.257 billion Taboans 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 Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forshire. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Taboan economy, worth 508 trillion Taboan Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,111 Taboan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids coo over King Maximillian's expected child, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Catball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taboa's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo-Taboan Catholicism.

Taboa is ranked 153rd in Gay and 107,215th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 5 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
