New Gough Island

Population623 million


CurrencySouth African Dollar

The Kingdom of South Africa of New Gough Island is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 623 million South Africans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 16.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Gough Islandian economy, worth 22.4 trillion South African Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,000 South African Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and New Gough Island has designated Pretoria as its capital city. Crime is almost non-existent. New Gough Island's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Gough Island is ranked 20,595th in the world and 8th in World Conference for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
