Neo Polisophos

Population4.63 billion

CapitalNova Sophia


The Conservative Democracy of Neo Polisophos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Someone with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.63 billion Neo 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, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Sophia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Neo Polisophian economy, worth 861 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 186,038 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 671,547 per year while the poor average 36,817, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. 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 Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo Polisophos is ranked 38,240th in the world and 30th in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,484.92 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
