New United Islands

Population6.017 billion

LeaderPetro Kold


The Democratic Republic of New United Islands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Petro Kold with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.017 billion Sealords are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidon. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New United Islandsian economy, worth 687 trillion Pearls 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 114,312 Pearls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New United Islands's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New United Islands is ranked 193,186th in the world and 808th in The Communist Bloc for Most Conservative, scoring 33.17 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
