“A Nation on a Mission”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: 10000 Islands
The Democratic Republic of Neo Kingston is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Johnson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.521 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 80%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.
Sex changes are routinely performed at Neo Kingston's hospitals, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Neo Kingston Blood Tithe, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Neo Kingston's national animal is the Grasshopper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Kingston Dollar.
