Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic People's Republic of New Moravia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nerys Broughton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.133 billion New Moravians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalassa. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Moravian economy, worth a remarkable 5,005 trillion broken dreams 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. 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 an impressive 171,814 broken dreams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. 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 Moravia's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Misanthropism.

New Moravia is ranked 142,313th in the world and 4,221st in Balder for Most Devout, with 5.49 Prayers Per Hour.
