Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free State of Cannibaland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Barack O'Llama with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.896 billion Cannibals enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dystopia. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cannibalandian economy, worth 872 trillion Benneths a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 223,857 Benneths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Cannibaland's mid-life crisis, no one born in Cannibaland can fix a leaky faucet, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime is totally unknown. Cannibaland's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cannibaland is ranked 90,260th in the world and 183rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Black Market, with 145 billion Standard Monetary Units.
