CurrencyCourellian Dollar

The Republic of Courelli is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Governor Joshua B Thomas with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.006 billion Courellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leoncavallo. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Courellian economy, worth 813 trillion Courellian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 162,462 Courellian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. Courelli's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Courelli is ranked 147,268th in the world and 92nd in Social Liberal Union for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -372.25 on the Hayek Index.
