Free Republic of Sonora

Population505 million



The Federal Republic of Free Republic of Sonora is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 505 million sonorenses are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hermosillo. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient  Free Republic of Sonora economy, worth 54.1 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,098 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Republic of Sonora's national animal is the eagle.

Free Republic of Sonora is ranked 113,598th in the world and 5,333rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 32.63 on the Hayek Index.
