Neo Polisophos

Population5.206 billion

CapitalHighest Probability Density of The MO


The Juggernaut of Neo Polisophos is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Neo with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.206 billion Polisophians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highest Probability Density of The MO. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Polisophian economy, worth 973 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 186,965 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 611,140 per year while the poor average 42,994, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and write-in candidate 'Neo Sucks' is perennially popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Polisophos's national animal is the Cockatiel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo Polisophos is ranked 1,236th in the world and 2nd in The League of Conservative Nations for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 9,589.09 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
