|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of New Upper Harconesa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 668 million New Upper Harconesans 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 Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of we can't decide. The average income tax rate is 48.7%.
The sizeable but inefficient New Upper Harconesan economy, worth 34.3 trillion arbitars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,391 arbitars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making New Upper Harconesans any less frightened, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Upper Harconesa's national animal is the undecided, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
