The Taxable Income of Fishing Boat Proceeds is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor of the Realm Patrick Halberd with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 11.167 billion Fishing Boaters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nerdfighteria Island. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fishing Boater economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion peeps a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,214 peeps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Nerdfighteria Island's water use, discarded pennies litter the streets, euthanasia is legal, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown. Fishing Boat Proceeds's national animal is the puppy-sized elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Fishing Boat Proceeds.

Fishing Boat Proceeds is ranked 135,647th in the world and 433rd in Field Egg Group for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -83.99 on the Hayek Index.
