New Cerveza

Population3.005 billion


The Republic of New Cerveza is a massive, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.005 billion New Cervezans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Cervezan economy, worth 146 trillion Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,670 Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and Leader has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cerveza's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Cerveza is ranked 27,987th in the world and 433rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,388.84 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
