The Republic of New Catalonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President and the Generality with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 16.885 billion New Catalans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Algre. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant New Catalonian economy, worth 99.1 trillion pessetas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,872 pessetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheism has been named as New Catalonia's national religion, Port Algre spends billions upgrading public transport, New Catalonia has designated Port Algre as its capital city, and President and the Generality has just been declared ruler of New Catalonia in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Catalonia's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.

New Catalonia is ranked 244,550th in the world and 47th in South America for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 6,002 Standard Monetary Units.
