Never was New England

Population1.85 billion

LeaderPrime Minister John Goodman
FaithNone or Atheism


The Commonwealth of Never was New England is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Goodman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.85 billion Never was New Englandians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Never was New Englandian economy, worth 152 trillion Quans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,347 Quans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Never was New England's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None or Atheism.

Never was New England is ranked 12,756th in the world and 366th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,895.43 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
