The Allied States of Placeholder60 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.708 billion Placeholder60ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Placeholder60ian economy, worth 444 trillion Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,428 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Placeholder60's national animal is the Bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Placeholder60 is ranked 159,468th in the world and 8,586th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -161.69 on the Hayek Index.
