New Sicily Islands

Population1.112 billion


The Republic of New Sicily Islands is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.112 billion New Sicily Islandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 31.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Sicily Islandsian economy, worth 59.2 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 53,232 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Sicily Islands's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Sicily Islands is ranked 107,477th in the world and 3rd in Lasagna for Fattest Citizens, with 9.98 Obesity Rate.
