Newdayo

The Commonwealth of Newdayo is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 270 million Newdayoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Newdayoan economy, worth 21.3 trillion Yaps a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 78,925 Yaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, there's no such thing as bad publicity, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newdayo's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newdayo is ranked 70,419th in the world and 2,516th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,537.57 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
