The Rogue Nation of Kingpins

The Rogue Nation of Kingpins is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Don of Dons Don Carlos Trafficante with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.245 billion Traffickers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trafficante. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kingpinsian economy, worth 196 trillion Kilos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,850 Kilos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Trafficante spends billions upgrading public transport, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and rumor has it that The Don of Dons Don Carlos Trafficante has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingpins's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
