New Belia

CapitalNew Belia City
LeaderLeader Harwell


The Constitutional Monarchy of New Belia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader Harwell with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.307 billion New Belians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Belia City. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Belian economy, worth a remarkable 1,417 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,650 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, Leader Harwell's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, people can get away with murder these days, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Belia's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Belia is ranked 9,645th in the world and 228th in the West Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 11,598.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
