Veterans Association

Population2.384 billion

AnimalBlack Dragon

The Free Land of Veterans Association is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 2.384 billion Veterans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Veteran economy, worth 359 trillion Loots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,809 Loots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veterans Association's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veterans Association is ranked 248,182nd in the world and 11,908th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -64.34 on the Hayek Index.
