Slovenia is world's first...

I was surprised to find out today that, at least in one small, yet not quite irrelevant way, my mother nation of Slovenia is first in something.

It is the world's most taxed country! Leading Belgium, Denmark and Sweden, according to this article from May 2007 by Forbes.

The figures in the slides tell you how much an executive earning a certain amount gets to take home. In Slovenia, an executive earning €50,000 per year gets to keep €27,627, and an executive earning €1,000,000 gets to keep €398,503. Everything else goes to taxes.

If anyone is still wondering why I moved to St. Kitts & Nevis, I hope that this will now help clarify that complicated and subtle question once and for all. :-)
