Southern Giraffe Islands

The Queendom of Southern Giraffe Islands is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 220 million Southern Giraffe Islandsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 32.7%.

The thriving Southern Giraffe Islandsian economy, worth 20.7 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,064 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Giraffe Islands's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Giraffe Islands is ranked 103,628th in the world and 5,516th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 46.6 on the Hayek Index.
