The United Kingdom actually!
We've got nothing to do with what Johny Foreigner does in Europe.
Traditionally (some of us) haven't minded high(ish) taxes as the state has provided for our needs (Health, Education, Unemployment) It's like insurance without the thieving middle man and big corporations.
It could be worse we could live in Australia where they apparently get sod all back.
