If you were Prime Minister…
You are now in Taxlandia, a tiny European state with gorgeous mountains and clear blue lakes. A popular tourist destination when the economy was booming and a country with minimal taxes, Taxlandia faces now an unprecedented crisis. A lot of companies moved their headquarters, tourism decreased. Last year the authorities admitted that it was time to increase taxes. Soon, an unofficial “tax rebellion” started.
And now YOU have been appointed the new Prime Minister of Taxlandia! You have to start collecting more taxes, build the new infrastructure, and ensure further development of the country. Good luck!
- Earn high scores as you solve various quests
- Save cities from natural disasters and bad investment
- Restore happiness and welfare in Taxlandia
In the process, understand the tax mechanisms and the way they are collected.

Participants will be receiving social based incentives, i.e. a biker will receive points if s/he bikes on the same path with other S-bikers. During the project S-bikers will receive different rewards (sport/bike equipment) based on their physical activity performance and on their social performance.
