Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Democratic Republic of New Ameri is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Josef Stalin II with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 880 million New Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Amerian economy, worth 113 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, 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 128,424 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, foreign musicians that Josef Stalin II dislikes are turned away at the border, and penal labor is a de facto death sentence. 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.

New Ameri is ranked 81,138th in the world and 15th in International Socialism for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,821.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
