Takso

CurrencyTakson dollar
AnimalTakson

The Protectorate of Takso is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 168 million Taksons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The powerhouse Takson economy, worth 10.0 trillion Takson dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,689 Takson dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Takso's national animal is the Takson, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Takso is ranked 87,553rd in the world and 1st in Taksoverse for Most Influential, scoring 76 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
