The Golden Empire of Novo Portugal is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by César da República Ricardo with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 14.963 billion Portuguese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisboa. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth a remarkable 2,148 trillion Escudoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 143,593 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, Novo Portugal is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and Novo Portugal has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novo Portugal's national animal is the Iberian Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Novo Portugal is ranked 238,939th in the world and 124th in Portugal for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.92 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
