Regional Influence: Ambassador


The Shogunate of New Suternia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 7.828 billion New Suternians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sutelinia. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Suternian economy, worth 284 trillion Stuis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,351 Stuis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, and fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. New Suternia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.

New Suternia is ranked 85,150th in the world and 9th in New Western Atlantic for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,175.99 on the Gilded Widget Scale.

Largest Pizza Delivery Sector: 4,722nd
Most Primitive: 1st in the region
