The Free Market Plutocracy of New Portuguese Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Financial Officer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.708 billion New Portuguese are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santazela. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient New Portuguese Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 356,197 Escudoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,274,374 per year while the poor average 4,002, a ratio of 818 to 1.

New Portuguese no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter New Portuguese Empirean pirates, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Portuguese Empire's national animal is the Iberian Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New Portuguese Empire is ranked 260,427th in the world and 1,570th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.28 bananas ingested per day.
