New Zebrica

Population818 million

The Republic of New Zebrica is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and frequent executions. The hard-working, democratic population of 818 million New Zebricans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 5.8%.

The strong New Zebrican economy, worth 51.5 trillion Rocks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,019 Rocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has just been declared ruler of New Zebrica in an international press conference, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Zebrica's national animal is the Zebra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Zebrica is ranked 207,179th in the world and 352nd in Crystal Falls for Most Beautiful Environments, with 282.61 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
