CurrencyShrooms euro

The Republic of Taco Respublic is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.144 billion Taco Respublicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeppelin. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taco Respublician economy, worth a remarkable 1,765 trillion Shrooms euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,601 Shrooms euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases. Crime is totally unknown. Taco Respublic's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Blue Öyster Cult.

Taco Respublic is ranked 199,598th in the world and 382nd in Forest for Most Secular, with 13.93 Atheism Rate.
