Newex Nov Can

Population679 million



The Socialist States of Newex Nov Can is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 679 million Newex Nov Canians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falconaire. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Newex Nov Canian economy, worth 83.3 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 122,691 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is a law unto itself, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, and the nation has become both the largest producer and consumer of abaci in Europe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newex Nov Can's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Newex Nov Can is ranked 38,787th in the world and 504th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,354.88 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
