The Most Serene Republic of Stellanova

"Play nice."
UN Category: Left-wing Utopia
Civil Rights: Superb
Economy: Struggling
Political Freedoms: Superb

The Most Serene Republic of Stellanova is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising fourteen-year-old boys selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Crime is totally unknown. Stellanova's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the ju ju.

Now that's a proper government. Sounds simply blissful.

Hee! Whoever wrote the descriptions has a great sense of humour.

Thing is though, with that sort of a paradise, you'd need a strong defence force, because certain big powers wouldn't like you too much, as you'd be showing them up. You even be accused of having "weapons of large destructors", if you get my drift :-)
