Snow 179

The Republic of Snow 179 is a massive, pleasant nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.931 billion Snow 179ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.6%.

The strong Snow 179ian economy, worth 156 trillion moons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,285 moons, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, the Snow 179 City Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snow 179's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Snow 179 is ranked 172,871st in the world and 3,576th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 50.7 on the Hayek Index.
