The Holy Republic of WealthPeaceBeauty is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.103 billion WealthPeaceBeautyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.0%.

The frighteningly efficient WealthPeaceBeautyian economy, worth 199 trillion euros 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. 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 94,931 euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, grazing lands are filled with cattle wearing odd-looking anti-pollution devices, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WealthPeaceBeauty's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

WealthPeaceBeauty is ranked 112,893rd in the world and 3,304th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 7.79 on the Hayek Index.
