The Most Serene Republic of Nieuw Gent is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 382 million Nieuwe Gentenaars are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuw Gent. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Ne nieuwe gentenaar economy, worth 18.5 trillion Euros 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 48,458 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nieuw Gent recently decided against having a capital city, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nieuw Gent's national animal is the Crowned Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
