So what would happen if there was a tiny country on the north-west peak of a Pangaea-like continent filled with enough resources to fuel a war with earth for decades (though the war never actually happened), and had a election system like this:
Paying tax is completly optional no prison for tax-avoiding.
Paying normal tax fee of about 10% will give you goverment support; things like public schools
Paying a higher tax fee of about 15% will give you one presidential vote.
Paying higher than that will resort to more votes 32%=2 votes 50%=3 (in a non-linear fashion).
Note: The world's tech level is just about at the discovery of oil
Edit: So what would its neighbors think or the people themselves? Would it strengthen the country's economy or weaken it
