Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Democratic Republic of New Ameri is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Joseph Reed with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.147 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, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Washington DCP. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Amerian economy, worth 295 trillion dollars 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 137,836 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated New Amerian pensions. 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.

New Ameri is ranked 32,373rd in the world and 30th in International Socialism for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,698.42 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
