Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Matriarchy of PlanetPunk is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dark Lord with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.592 billion Punkers 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Punkium. The average income tax rate is 12.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming PlanetPunkian economy, worth 236 trillion Bonks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 148,607 Bonks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, the nation is known as the cheapskates of The North Pacific, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. PlanetPunk's national animal is the Slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

PlanetPunk is ranked 47,738th in the world and 2,893rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 88.62 on the Hayek Index.
