New Black Earth

The Holy Empire of New Black Earth is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 539 million New Black Earthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Black Earthian economy, worth 59.1 trillion denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,558 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, Leader's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Black Earth's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Black Earth is ranked 72,725th in the world and 2,171st in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.93 bananas ingested per day.
