Al Becakad

Population918 million


The Emirate of Al Becakad is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 918 million Al Becakadis are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The very strong Al Becakadi economy, worth 71.9 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 78,280 Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 294,872 per year while the poor average 14,487, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Al Becakad's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Al Becakad is ranked 21,879th in the world and 2nd in Islamic States for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 116.65 on the Hayek Index.
