Compared to sheer economic scale, the answer to which country contains higher tax capacity may not be so apparent since tax capacity is a relatively complicated problem to measure. As a robust empirical regularity, tax capacity is proved to share a positive relationship with state capacity. To the extent that state capacity is in part affected by ethnic diversity, this essay argues that ethnic diversity should have a negative relationship with state capacity. s. The essay uses both theoretical elaboration and statistics to discover if ethnic diversity has a specific effect on the national tax capacity.
