New Ropakstadt

Population580 million



The Socialist Federal Union of New Ropakstadt is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 580 million Ropaks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sablefisch. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ropakstadtian economy, worth 51.2 trillion Niks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 88,267 Niks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, elected officials who disagree with Leader have a lot of accidents, and punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ropakstadt's national animal is the Robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Ropakstadt is ranked 224,493rd in the world and 5,390th in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -226.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
