The WHY AM I BLEEDING ORANGE of Anarchic Hallownest is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 680 million Hallowers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Tears. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hallownestian economy, worth 77.6 trillion geos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 114,068 geos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 519,128 per year while the poor average 15,322, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, artists are pillars of society, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, and the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Anarchic Hallownest. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anarchic Hallownest's national animal is the vessel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Anarchic Hallownest is ranked 2,321st in the world and 7th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 154.65 on the Hayek Index.
