The Aivintis 2nd Crown Battalion

Population873 million


The Armed Republic of The Aivintis 2nd Crown Battalion is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 873 million Aivintians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Aivintian economy, worth 8.50 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,736 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Aivintis 2nd Crown Battalion's national animal is the wolf.

The Aivintis 2nd Crown Battalion is ranked 141,852nd in the world and 2,585th in Artificial Solar System for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 46.37 on the Hayek Index.
