Nova Xallian

Population242 million


The Republic of Nova Xallian is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 242 million Nova Xallianians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The thriving Nova Xallianian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 73,464 Guilders, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,559 per year while the poor average 13,001, a ratio of 21.9 to 1.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, elections have been outlawed, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Leader's most personal functions, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nova Xallian's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nova Xallian is ranked 26,818th in the world and 4th in The United Provinces for Most Pro-Market, scoring 74.43 on the Rand Index.
