Neo Colorado

Population9.703 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.703 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 99.9%.

The large but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 820 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 84,547 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, large sections of Neo Colorado have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. 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 167,045th in the world and 9,300th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -19.62 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
