Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.584 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 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 inefficient Neo Coloradoan economy, worth 700 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 92,377 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, Neo Coloradoan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. 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 124,415th in the world and 6,516th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 39.71 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
