“If you build it, they will come”
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: 00000 A World Power
The Nomadic Peoples of Neasmyrna is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, keen interest in outer space, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.104 billion Neasmyrnans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Neasmyrnan economy, worth a remarkable 3,019 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 176,515 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.
Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, the people of Neasmyrna are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Neasmyrna's national animal is the hummingbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
Neasmyrna is ranked 4th in 00000 A World Power and 113,726th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -3,295.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
