We welcome The Taoist Government of The Hypercube (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=The+Hypercube), as the 242nd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Taoist Government of The Hypercube is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 8.576 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.
Guns are banned, Red-Haired Beavers deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The Hypercube's national animal is the Red-Haired Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the chupacabra skin.
