Athemherst

Population310 million

The Republic of Athemherst is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 310 million Athemherstians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Athemherstian economy, worth 33.8 trillion Ahmt Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 109,177 Ahmt Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime is totally unknown. Athemherst's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Athemherst is ranked 171,659th in the world and 7th in Battenberg for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 27.57 on the Hayek Index.
