New Spartasia

Population421 million

The Empire of New Spartasia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 421 million New Spartasians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish New Spartasian economy, worth 10.0 trillion Solaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 23,844 Solaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Spartasia's national animal is the Salusan Bull.

New Spartasia is ranked 67,950th in the world and 964th in The Communist Bloc for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.21 bananas ingested per day.
