Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Absurdly Cold Place of Iceland-Greenland Union is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 533 million Iceland-Greenlanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reykjavik. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Iceland-Greenlandic economy, worth 54.4 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,107 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown. Iceland-Greenland Union's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iceland-Greenland Union is ranked 162,605th in the world and 284th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -74.21 on the Hayek Index.
