The People's Democratic Republic of New Ameri is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Reed with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.789 billion New Americans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moscow. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Amerian economy, worth 239 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 134,136 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, bike rage is all the rage, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ameri's national animal is the Russian Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.
