Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of New Pleasant Hill is a huge, safe nation, ruled by President Reagan with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 916 million New Pleasant Hillians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reagan. The average income tax rate is 25.2%.

The frighteningly efficient New Pleasant Hillian economy, worth 141 trillion New Pleasant Hill Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,976 New Pleasant Hill Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of New Pleasant Hill, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Pleasant Hill's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Pleasant Hill is ranked 11,541st in the world and 649th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.42 on the Human Development Index.
