South St Maarten

Population11.126 billion

CapitalNew Amsterdam
FaithDutch Reformed Protestant


The Constitutional Monarchy of South St Maarten is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.126 billion Maartenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maartenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion Dinis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,340 Dinis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Cardinal is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, all the playground's a stage for Maartenian schoolchildren, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South St Maarten's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dutch Reformed Protestant.

South St Maarten is ranked 256,545th in the world and 1,053rd in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -128.82 on the Hayek Index.
