Estado Novo Portugues

Population11.19 billion

LeaderAfonso Salazar


The Holy Catholic State of Estado Novo Portugues is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Afonso Salazar with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.19 billion Portuguese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisboa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth a remarkable 2,208 trillion salazars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,375 salazars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 779,789 per year while the poor average 33,823, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents, people's charity begins and ends at home, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Estado Novo Portugues's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Estado Novo Portugues is ranked 229,553rd in the world and 8th in Terra Sacra for Fattest Citizens, with 5.84 Obesity Rate.
