Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.233 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 99.6%.

The large but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 643 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 88,922 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Arkle Scribe holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education. 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 167,042nd in the world and 8,918th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -29.78 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
