Nationalist Gold Union

Population6.265 billion

LeaderJosef Gulyás


The Neuburg of Nationalist Gold Union is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Josef Gulyás with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.265 billion Neuburgers 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Budapest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Neuburger economy, worth a remarkable 1,506 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 240,466 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 772,185 per year while the poor average 56,760, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nationalist Gold Union's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Nationalist Gold Union is ranked 5,733rd in the world and 2nd in APSIA for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
