New Kaitland

Population14 million


The Matriarchy of New Kaitland is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 14 million New Kaitlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Kaitlandian economy, worth 559 billion Moonbucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,950 Moonbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kaitland's national animal is the Foxdeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Kaitland is ranked 18,884th in the world and 1st in United Sanctuary for Safest, scoring 113.29 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
