Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The easy way to do this is to add a new tax bracket with a higher marginal rate at, say, 4xGDP per head.

In the UK the highest marginal rate of 40% kicks in slightly below 2xGDP/head. A 60% rate tax above 4xGDP/head (that's over £90k) couldn't hurt. And an 80% rate above 8x wouldn't be bad either.
