Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The British Territory of New Britanna is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lieutenant-Governor Alden Brown with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.567 billion New Britannans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halifax. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.4%.

The all-consuming New Britannan economy, worth 473 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 85,024 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, and the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Britanna's national animal is the osprey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of England.

New Britanna is ranked 51,283rd in the world and 8th in American Union for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.73 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
