Nouveau Yathrib

The Saffron Golden Colony of Nouveau Yathrib is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.438 billion Khuzifenqis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Administration, with Education, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Khuzifenqi economy, worth 455 trillion francRiels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,631 francRiels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,087 per year while the poor average 8,417, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

Disputed territories across Khuzifenq are being claimed by Khuzifenqi college students, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, martial law has been declared and the populace is kept under tight control, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nouveau Yathrib's national animal is the garuda starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Nouveau Yathrib is ranked 237,876th in the world and 20th in Khuzifenq for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -20.64 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
