The Dolphin Paradise of Sassoon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.464 billion Sassoonians 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 government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ginsburg City. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sassoonian economy, worth 656 trillion Sons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,229 Sons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, the World Dolphin Paradise Games have been won again by Sassoon as no other country cares enough to compete, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sassoon's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Francoism.

Sassoon is ranked 8,733rd in the world and 211th in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 89.14 Effective Tax Rate.
