Welcome to Sim Pixelonia.
Pixelonia is a rich country with a steady tax of 10% of all goods and services (sans food and government sponsored shelter). There is no income tax.
Crime in Pixelonia is at an all time low in the world, as Pixel’s new policies have five possible sentences to any crime:
- Deportation (usually with mandatory sterilization).
- Community service (some crimes carry a lifetime sentence of community service).
- Jail time (if community service and deportation are not viable)
Pixelonia also has completely free health care (sans most cosmetic surgery), free legal aid (indeed, law is not a paying profession), and free education up until your first master’s degree.
Education in Pixelonia follows the twelve year lesson plan seen here and instructors are paid well and also forced to take one extra free university class per year.
After graduation, all citizens are forced to serve two years of public service (including everything from litter collection to charity work to armed forces). During these two years, they are provided with a small per diem, free housing, and free career counseling.
Politicians are paid minimum wage and not allowed to advertise for upcoming elections outside of the set debates and public advertising budget. Thus, they have no incentive to pass legislation that is not in their constituents’ best interests.
The true beauty of Pixelonia, however, lies in the citizenship test. To become a citizen, you must successfully pass an intelligence test, a psychological test, a background check, and a set of interviews, intraviews, and outerviews. Children born in Pixelonia are de facto citizens until their community service expires, after which they must pass a psychological test and an interview to maintain citizenship.
The goal of Pixelonia is to be a home to all those that the rest of the world overrules with their purposeful ignorance.
Update: to go along with Ex_cal’s criticism, in Pixelonia, it is against the law to be Jewish 😛
