New Agraya

Population835 million

LeaderAisling Cearbhaill


The People's Republic of New Agraya is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Aisling Cearbhaill with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 835 million New Agrayans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angela. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Agrayan economy, worth 78.2 trillion Agras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,694 Agras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and Aisling Cearbhaill has just been declared ruler of New Agraya in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Agraya's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Agraya is ranked 37,320th in the world and 529th in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 154.72 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
