Namat Sta

Population781 million



The Free Land of Namat Sta is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 781 million Namat Stans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenwilde. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Namat Stan economy, worth 47.4 trillion leaves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,703 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Namat Sta's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Namat Sta is ranked 149,034th in the world and 6,969th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -52.2 on the Hayek Index.
