The Independent State of Nouveaux Croix is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 8.679 billion Nouveaux Croixians 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 Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouveaux Croix City. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing industries.

The police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, once-popular honeymoon destinations have become ghosts towns due to a lack of visitors, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Nouveaux Croix after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nouveaux Croix's national animal is the hippogriff, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the farthing.

Nouveaux Croix is ranked 1st in Socialist Military Alliance and 15,181st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 156 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
