The Republic of South Newlandia
“That humor would not cut it on SNL”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The Republic of South Newlandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The people with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.729 billion South Newlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elephant Valley. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient South Newlandian economy, worth 307 trillion Newls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,795 Newls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Newlandia's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faith in Humanity.
