Stagnant Axon Terminal

Population8.996 billion


The Queendom of Stagnant Axon Terminal is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 8.996 billion Stagnant Axon Terminalians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Stagnant Axon Terminalian economy, worth 245 trillion Synapses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,316 Synapses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, builders across Stagnant Axon Terminal are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the government pours millions of Synapses into rehabilitation programs annually, and the Stagnant Axon Terminal Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stagnant Axon Terminal's national animal is the BRAAAAAIIINNNN, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stagnant Axon Terminal is ranked 154,800th in the world and 4,722nd in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 33.68 on the Hayek Index.
