New Conneticut

The Republic of New Conneticut is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 186 million New Conneticutians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Conneticutian economy, worth 7.68 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,300 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and when conspiracy theorists talk about "government moles" they're referring to mysteriously mobile skin lesions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. New Conneticut's national animal is the frog.

New Conneticut is ranked 140,387th in the world and 348th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,069.07 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
