Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Disunited State of Nuew is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by This Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.408 billion Nuewians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Administrative District. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The Nuewian economy, worth 879 trillion Labor Vouchers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 65,571 Labor Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, the Administrative District's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime is totally unknown. Nuew's national animal is the Nuewian Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nuew is ranked 144,779th in the world and 85th in The Versutian Federation for Most Devout, with 8.05 Prayers Per Hour.
