OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Cat's Meow of Neko Coneko is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by My Lady of Acqua with a fair hand, and remarkable for its surprisingly youthful workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.63 billion Neko Conekoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Law & Order, although Public Transport, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acqua. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Neko Conekoan economy, worth 114 trillion kitty kibbles a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,144 kitty kibbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neko Coneko has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neko Coneko's national animal is the iriomote wildcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neko Coneko is ranked 2nd in panda and 113,920th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
