Fantasy Peninsula

Population1.169 billion

CapitalBig Smoke


The Republic of Fantasy Peninsula is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.169 billion Fantasy Peninsulans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Smoke. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fantasy Peninsulan economy, worth 140 trillion quatloos 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,882 quatloos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fantasy Peninsula's national animal is the cockatrice, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fantasy Peninsula is ranked 159,857th in the world and 6,085th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -172.01 on the Hayek Index.
