OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Kingdom of Taboa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Maximillian with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 7.032 billion Taboans 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forshire. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. 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, its national religion is Neo-Taboan Catholicism, and its currency is the Taboan Pound.

Taboa is ranked 1,517th in Osiris and 61,434th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -24 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
