Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.879 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 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 99.5%.

The large but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 540 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 78,538 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arkle Scribe's mistress is the belle at many state balls, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. 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 2,004th in the world and 94th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 151.94 Quips Per Hour.
