The Democratic Republic of Neo Kingston is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Johnson with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.267 billion Neo Kingstonians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Neo Kingstonian economy, worth 548 trillion Kingston Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 128,536 Kingston Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Kingston Dollars of property damage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Kingston's national animal is the Grasshopper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
