New Cerveza

Population1.576 billion


The Republic of New Cerveza is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.576 billion New Cervezans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Cervezan economy, worth 78.9 trillion Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,056 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners who refuse to hire ex-cons often wake up with a Turtle's head in their bed, 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, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 183,546th in the world and 4,829th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 2.07 on the Hayek Index.
