The Independent State of Nouveaux Croix is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.355 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.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouveaux Croix City. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Nouveaux Croixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,181 trillion farthings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,117 farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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 a capable 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.
