The United Socialist States of New Great Oceania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Providence with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.244 billion New Great Oceanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Auckland. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish New Great Oceanian economy, worth 33.0 trillion Oceanian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 26,524 Oceanian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, they who do not work shall not eat, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Great Oceania's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
