Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Techno-Induscracy of Haishan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sashan Vidin with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15 billion Haize are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icturk City. The average income tax rate is 81.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Haize economy, worth a remarkable 5,115 trillion hikans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 341,002 hikans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haishan's national animal is the crane, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Haishan is ranked 14,202nd in the world and 29th in Greater Dienstad for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.03 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
