Namat Sta

Population1.337 billion



The Free Land of Namat Sta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.337 billion Namat Stans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenwilde. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Namat Stan economy, worth 83.6 trillion leaves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,516 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and the tightness of border controls in Namat Sta leave a little to be desired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Namat Sta's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Namat Sta is ranked 131,799th in the world and 5,330th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -57.14 on the Hayek Index.
