Sounzen Tra

The Empire of Sounzen Tra is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 333 million Sounzen Trans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Sounzen Tran economy, worth 9.17 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 27,539 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, judges are all-powerful, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, and women are reassured that they're being oppressed for their own good. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sounzen Tra's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sounzen Tra is ranked 223,099th in the world and 8,994th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -16.22 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
