‘Why is garbage collection another tenner?’

‘Didn’t I tell you? There are no taxes at EasyCity.’

‘And yet we have to pay £10 to have our garbage collected.’

‘Yes, that’s a fee. It’s not a tax. We have abolished all taxes. In fact, we don’t believe in taxes.’

‘But how do you pay for street cleaning, schools, health care?’

‘We believe in the personal responsibility of our tenants. That’s why we have introduced a garbage fee. We’ve patented this actually: EasyGarbage. In addition, EasyTenants takes care of weekly street cleanings. Schools, doctors, hospitals are all available in Lionsgate and Gateshead.’
