Osbedove

The Republic of Osbedove is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its lack of airports, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.764 billion Osbedoveans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Osbedovean economy, worth a remarkable 1,036 trillion francs 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 133,451 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the nation's diplomats are all talk and no action, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and putting houses on stilts is elevating house porches and prices alike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osbedove's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Osbedove is ranked 185,336th in the world and 17th in Soviet Democracy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1.68 on the Hayek Index.
