What is Myanmar?

Kleptocracy: "Kleptocratic governance means that the economy is subordinated to the interests of the ruling kleptocrats. Distributive states that derive their wealth from the extraction of natural resources (e.g., diamonds and oil, in a few prominent cases) can be particularly prone to kleptocracy. Redistributive governments that derive their wealth through taxation of their population have a natural limitation on how far they can extend kleptocratic policies." (Wiki)

Raubwirtschaft: "(German for "plunder economy," "robber economy," or "rapine") is a form of economy where the goal is to plunder the wealth and resources of a country or geographical area." (Wiki)

Any other suggestions?
