Valincong

Population18 million

The Democratic Republic of Valincong is a tiny, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 18 million Valincongians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Valincongian economy, worth 849 billion bitcoins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,197 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valincong's national animal is the dove.

Valincong is ranked 87,770th in the world and 3,345th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 51.33 on the Hayek Index.
