Lower Evium Tarah

Population728 million

The Republic of Lower Evium Tarah is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 728 million Tarahnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tarahian economy, worth 50.7 trillion pounds 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 69,590 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Lower Evium Tarah have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, autocrats are persona non grata, and funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Evium Tarah's national animal is the Vali's Mom, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Evium Tarah is ranked 65,444th in the world and 1st in Controlistia for Most Authoritarian, with 890.08 milliStalins.
