Neo Polisophos

Population9.811 billion


AnimalPlain Parakeet

The Empire of Neo Polisophos is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Vicente with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.811 billion Polisophians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare 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 Brasília. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Polisophian economy, worth a remarkable 1,804 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,932 Aurums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 542,872 per year while the poor average 49,008, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. 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 Plain Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Neo Polisophos is ranked 47,941st in the world and 36th in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60.44 on the Rand Index.
