Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Democratic Republic of New Ameri is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Reed with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, avowedly heterosexual populace, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.426 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moscow. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Amerian economy, worth 190 trillion rubles 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 133,539 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, 'dead men tell no tales' is a valid legal defense, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. 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 Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.

New Ameri is ranked 152,059th in the world and 48th in International Socialism for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
