    Is this a rip off in my country?

    So right lets say your buying a PSN card or a PayPal card. Both would cost $15 dollars. And they are $10 cards.
    And now there's this thing called VAT and now a $10 card will cost $20. Is this even supposed to be allowed.
    And VAT is being runned by the government.

    VAT is everywhere. It's a form of tax that applies to each purchase you make (excluding some cases). Here VAT is 20% of the total cost. So a $10 card would be $12 including VAT.
    It depends on your country rules.

    Man, this is everywhere, for example in my country it is 21%.

    Now, I wouldn't mind if our politics weren't corrupted like hell. Dude we owe like 1000€ every second. SO I can 100% say, that all these bills I pay go to dept paying and not into making my Country better place to live... It's just... AAAAAARGH

    VAT not only applies to your purchases it also applies to your year's balance. For instance, suppose I run a company (a school, or whatever) during the year I gain a total of $X, I've spent $Y for my company needs (employees and other stuff) and I've left a total profit of $Z, now from this $Z we discount a VAT standard (20% here in my country) and I'm left with $Z-20%*Z
    This is prob as most EU countries don't have a shitload of taxes to pay (like a tax for having a dog or something)

    That means 20% off the profit that you make.
