Wine-loving Chimps

Population17.934 billion

CapitalChardonnay City


The Federation of Wine-loving Chimps is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caesar with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.934 billion Wine-loving Chimps love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chardonnay City. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wine-loving Chimp economy, worth a remarkable 3,118 trillion Bottles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 173,894 Bottles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, Wine-loving Chimp watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime is totally unknown. Wine-loving Chimps's national animal is the Chimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wine-loving Chimps is ranked 235,504th in the world and 10th in The Atheist Empire for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -23.78 on the Hayek Index.
