Soviet Taoistan

The T€chnoD€marchy of Soviet Taoistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Th€ Sup€r Kami Gurvi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.154 billion Taoistanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ilyss€a. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Taoistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,378 trillion Bl€u d€ Daos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 156,977 Bl€u d€ Daos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the government has been criticized for giving away Soviet Taoistan's territory to anyone who claims it, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the STBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime is totally unknown. Soviet Taoistan's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Taoistan is ranked 216,792nd in the world and 1,124th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -384.33 on the Hayek Index.
