Neo Colorado

Population17.514 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.514 billion Neo Coloradoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stilwater. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Neo Coloradoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 trillion Deenihans a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,004 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and rumor has it that Arkle Scribe has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Colorado's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo Colorado is ranked 219,343rd in the world and 8,896th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 31.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
