New Sandsnionion

Population3.667 billion

CapitalSand City


The Colony of New Sandsnionion is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.667 billion New Sandsnionionians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sand City. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Sandsnionionian economy, worth 240 trillion sands a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,702 sands, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Sandsnionion's national animal is the sandman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Sandsnionion is ranked 277,578th in the world and 4,796th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.89 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
