The Contrived Inhibition of Robbinston is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ron Burgundy with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 26.028 billion Robbinstonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Robbins. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Robbinstonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,615 trillion Beaver Pelts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,071 Beaver Pelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a dearth of space for new houses, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime is totally unknown. Robbinston's national animal is the lemur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Whataboutism.

Robbinston is ranked 196,703rd in the world and 5,268th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -24.6 on the Hayek Index.
