Wealth Distribution

Nilkawt is one of the world's most elegant and egalitarian societies.  There is no youth unemployment in Nilkawt.  There is no aged care crisis in Nilkawt.  Poverty in Nilkawt only exists as a matter of voluntary choice.

No-one in Nilkawt usually chooses to become wealthy for their own purposes, at least after becoming a Nilkawtian citizen.  Anyone entering Nilkawt for the first time usually brings most of their wealth with them.

There are few opportunities for exploitative practices by anyone within Nilkawt itself, which means that most Nilkawtians in search of wealth are likely to seek it elsewhere.  Being wealthy before entering Nilkawt has long been advisable, especially for tourists.  There are additional non-residency expenses associated with all sorts of fees, levies, taxes and charges in Nilkawt.  In fact, one of the primary fiscal policies of Nilkawt is to transfer wealth from visitors to residents as efficiently as possible.  This is no different from other countries with a tourism industry.

As to be expected, the financial services industry within Nilkawt also has an efficient wealth transfer division, as anyone visiting Nilkawt on a business visa will have soon discovered.  There are commissions for, and on, everything in Nilkawt.

The wealthiest Nilkawtians are usually those with entrepreneurial and philanthropic abilities.  Ordinary Nilkawtian business persons have very little wealth, as is the case in most societies.

One of the most significant entrepreneurial sectors in Nilkawt involves the emotional manipulation of rich, non-Nilkawtian relatives.  The techniques have been perfected by the former Nilkawtian defence minister, Mrs Jane Grange, the estranged wife of Doctor Grange.  Doctor Grange has recently become an expert on voluntary poverty.

At least half of all Nilkawtians have had the privilege of a financially comfortable upbringing elsewhere in the world, with a standard of education well above average.  It is a matter of much speculation whether such an upbringing correlates with an emotionally secure personal development and happy interpersonal experiences, given the subsequent life histories of the individuals in question.

It is, however, well known that the standard of education received in childhood and youth is rarely matched by a person's abilities, or even their interests.  For example, at least 20% of Nilkawtians have had an inadequate education through the Australian schooling system, though it did not prevent them from learning about the world properly at a later age.

As there is no possibility of accumulating real property in Nilkawt, most Nilkawtians own residential properties in other countries, and particularly in Australia. 

Nilkawtians, and even wealthy non-Nilkawtian permanent or temporary residents, are able to put their names on business establishments in Nilkawt, but only after paying substantial licence fees for the privilege of doing so.  Licence fees are also payable before putting pretentious names on residential properties.

Nilkawtians are not required to declare their non-Nilkawtian wealth to the government, or to the Bank of Nilkawt.  For this reason, no-one is quite sure who is rich or poor in Nilkawt.
