Cefalopotxi

The Federation of Cefalopotxi is a very large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 157 million Cefalopotxians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cefalopotxian economy, worth 8.30 trillion Gold Stars 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 52,891 Gold Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, on-duty Air Cefalopotxi flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cefalopotxi's national animal is the Giant Pacific Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cefalopotxi is ranked 132,783rd in the world and 125th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -60.42 on the Hayek Index.
