NationStates | The Republic of Durrrguffy

The Republic of Durrrguffy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 1.927 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown. Durrrguffy's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the rupee.

Durrrguffy is ranked 1576th in Galactic Republic and 78,826th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides.
