New Samon

Population2.323 billion

Leaderth3 R3volutionary Council of N3w Samon


The Communist Union of New Samon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by th3 R3volutionary Council of N3w Samon with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.323 billion Samons enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whalingrad. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonian economy, worth 269 trillion p3arls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,957 p3arls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's favourite colour is red (New Samon has found 1 easter egg), the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. New Samon's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Samon is ranked 226,996th in the world and 348th in The Leftist Assembly for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.21 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
