The Republic of Neo Yorka
“Greatness will come by looking forward”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of Neo Yorka is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tardigrade with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.693 billion Neo Yorkans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tardigrade City. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Neo Yorkan economy, worth 320 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,882 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Out-of-work actors say they can't complain, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Neo Yorkan mussels the biggest in the South Pacific, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Yorka's national animal is the Tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tardigradeism.
