Location: Ixars Puppet Storage

Regional Influence: Diplomat


The Colony of Neu Nederland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Lodewijk II with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.486 billion New Netherlanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuw Amsterdam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.8%.

The all-consuming Neu Nederlander economy, worth 147 trillion rijksdaalders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 99,444 rijksdaalders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,290 per year while the poor average 19,233, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, and Neu Nederland is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Neu Nederland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dutch Calvinism.

Neu Nederland is ranked 116,878th in the world and 4th in Ixars Puppet Storage for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.97 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
