New Carthagea

Population742 million


AnimalGolden Eagle

The Phoenician Kingdom of New Carthagea is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 742 million New Carthaginians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenicia. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Carthaginian economy, worth 77.5 trillion Sphaeras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,496 Sphaeras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Only persecuted professionals need apply, a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and for just a few extra Sphaeras New Carthaginians can get new driving records with their new cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Carthagea's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Carthagea is ranked 8,444th in the world and 1st in My NS Nations for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 34.6 Bank.
