Neo Colorado

Population8.146 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.146 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, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stilwater. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The large but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 722 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 88,703 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them. 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 98,697th in the world and 5,371st in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 36.17 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
