Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of The Independent Ohio Valley is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.936 billion Independents enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independence. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Independent economy, worth 194 trillion Dollops a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,632 Dollops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and a government program is underway to revitalize The Independent Ohio Valley's beaches. Crime is relatively low. The Independent Ohio Valley's national animal is the Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Independent Ohio Valley is ranked 1,187th in Balder and 26,356th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 11 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
