“Onwards upwards to somewhere”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Nomadic Peoples of New Greasbyland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Beloved Dave with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.147 billion New Greasbylandians 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of The Beloved Dave. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient New Greasbylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,234 trillion chocolate pennies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,948 chocolate pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Education and welfare spending are on the rise, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime is relatively low. New Greasbyland's national animal is the two legged cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
