Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Democratic Republic of New Ameri is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Josef Stalin II with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.045 billion 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, 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 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Amerian economy, worth 136 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, 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 130,607 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Workers have seized control of the economy, Josef Stalin II's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. 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 80,642nd in the world and 17th in International Socialism for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,106.68 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
