Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Kingdom of Takaram is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the King with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.741 billion Takarans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarakia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Takaran economy, worth a remarkable 2,726 trillion Aurites a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 279,942 Aurites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takaram's national animal is the Rabbit of Caerbannog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Takaram is ranked 19th in 10000 Islands and 1,241st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 14 on the Hayek Index.
