Rigels Light

Population6.727 billion


AnimalSnow Leopard

The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.727 billion Rigelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnilam. The average income tax rate is 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rigelian economy, worth 814 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,133 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Snow Leopard sacrifices, the red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rigels Light's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rigels Light is ranked 145,048th in the world and 4,804th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -277.2 on the Hayek Index.
