The government reallocates about 50% of state expenditures, the rest being mainly the expenditures of Social Insurance Agency (pensions), the expenses of health insurance companies and expenses of municipalities and regions.
Households pay about 80% of the state's taxes because they pay excise taxes and VAT as consumers and taxes and contributions as employees.
The state employs more than 400,000 people, with nearly 130,000 people paid out of the state budget.
Free of charge services such as education, travel by train or health are not free, citizens pay indirectly for them in advance, or the state provides them by issuing new debt.
States do not pay back the debt but refinance it with new bonds.
