Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Unified Catholic Republic of Newellington is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Unnamed Grand Vizier with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.727 billion Newellingtonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capitol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The all-consuming Newellingtonian economy, worth 104 trillion Newoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,487 Newoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 182,279 per year while the poor average 15,648, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Nudity is frowned upon, mothers drive their college-graduate children to work, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Newellington's radio stations, and a determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Newellington's national animal is the Robot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Newellington is ranked 41st in Catholic and 129,340th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -31 Smiles Per Hour (net).
