Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of South Arbavo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Darwin Montey with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.467 billion South Arbavoians 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 large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de el Undio. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The South Arbavoan economy, worth 95.1 trillion Florins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,796 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Arbavo's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spanish Catholic.

South Arbavo is ranked 153,733rd in the world and 126th in Conch Kingdom for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -29.75 on the Hayek Index.
