Novum Hesperia

Population327 million


AnimalBull 🐂

The Allied States of Novum Hesperia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 327 million Hesperians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbadrid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Novum Hesperian economy, worth 31.9 trillion Escusetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 97,482 Escusetas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 395,245 per year while the poor average 16,004, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, Novum Hesperia has designated Lisbadrid as its capital city, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novum Hesperia's national animal is the Bull 🐂, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Novum Hesperia is ranked 33,937th in the world and 401st in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 97,482.07 Standard Monetary Units.
