The Socialis Statum of Nova Babilonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Laurentius Hammurabi with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.391 billion latin-chaldeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Alexandria de Chaldeam. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient latin-chaldean economy, worth 514 trillion Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 151,737 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Babilonia's national animal is the de volucribus sphinge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Astrology.

Nova Babilonia is ranked 267,431st in the world and 1,217th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -448.48 on the Hayek Index.
