The Technological Monarchy of Plangainer is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kevin Bradley with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.654 billion Plangainerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Folkhul. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plangainerian economy, worth 436 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,426 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, and the election for Kevin Bradley's office's janitor is heating up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plangainer's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic Christianity.

Plangainer is ranked 206,675th in the world and 7,046th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -114.57 on the Hayek Index.
