Everyone loves to complain about taxes, but folks in some countries have a much greater right to complain than others.
One of the maps shows the percentage of GDP various countries take in taxes.
There’s a pretty big range in tax collections. Not surprisingly, perhaps, Cuba takes more in tax money as a percentage of GDP than anywhere else. The socialist Scandinavian nations are also highly ranked.
On the other hand, the U.S., like many East Asian countries, is pretty low in total tax collections.
