Their society progressed into a welfare state, funded by taxing the increasingly few productive residents. Their main industry being Easter eggs, the taxes were an especial burden on the bunnies, who eventually gave up and stopped laying the eggs. To divert public awareness away from the civilization's decline, the Easter Island government instituted a massive building program - those big stone heads - to artificially reinvigorate the economy. It had worked for the Egyptians (pyramids)and the Romans (the colosseum games), but, sadly, the big heads had no function except to stare out to sea. The government next legalized pot, which created tax revenue until everybody was too stoned to care. The populace gave up, put to sea in their stone ships, and fared badly, except for a few who made it to Colorado, where they are still stone heads today.
