The Vangards of Discourse

Population18.086 billion

LeaderHeap Big Boss


The Holy Empire of The Vangards of Discourse is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Heap Big Boss with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.086 billion Vangards of Discourseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vangards of Discoursean economy, worth a remarkable 1,986 trillion Vanfulersens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 109,859 Vanfulersens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Those who cut young children are told to cut it out, nine out of ten citizens of The Vangards of Discourse answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, school uniforms are compulsory, and the news is showing footage of Heap Big Boss bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vangards of Discourse's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Vangards of Discourse is ranked 266,868th in the world and 12,519th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -437.68 on the Hayek Index.
