OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Independent State of Nouveaux Croix is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.974 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 74%, 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 2nd in Socialist Military Alliance and 93,519th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
