New Zhengguo

Population960 million


The People's Republic of New Zhengguo is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 960 million New Zhengguoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 34.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish New Zhengguoan economy, worth 27.1 trillion Leifengs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,207 Leifengs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, New Zhengguo has designated New Zhengguo City as its capital city, military funding has been stripped back, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered New Zhengguoan weed picker are way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Zhengguo's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Zhengguo is ranked 89,313th in the world and 2nd in Asian Archipelago for Most Armed, with 0.38 Weapons Per Person.
