Neo Colorado

Population9.205 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.205 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stilwater. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The large but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 778 trillion Deenihans a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,556 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Neo Colorado Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Stilwater, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. 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 1,274th in the world and 79th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 331.43 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
