Anabelle I

Population5.9 billion

LeaderMahira Anabelle


The Golden Hasal Pharaoh of Anabelle I is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mahira Anabelle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.9 billion Anabellians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jortun. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Anabelle Iian economy, worth 369 trillion Bells 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 62,627 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anabelle I's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anabelle I is ranked 11,687th in the world and 697th in Osiris for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 83.42 Effective Tax Rate.
