The People's Republic of Capablanca is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Most Random of Numbers with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.758 billion Capablancans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Golden City of Congress. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Capablancan economy, worth 463 trillion Freedollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 167,954 Freedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capablanca's national animal is the Bureaucat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Capablanca is ranked 267,712th in the world and 13,822nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -473.58 on the Hayek Index.
