OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Tagete is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.933 billion Tageteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasna. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Tagete's hospitals, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime is totally unknown. Tagete's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dinaro.

Tagete is ranked 116th in Wysteria and 85,656th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
