South Newlandia

Population7.965 billion

CapitalElephant Valley


The Elefriends of South Newlandia is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.965 billion South Newlandians 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.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elephant Valley. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient South Newlandian economy, worth 954 trillion Newls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,860 Newls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation projects take decades to complete, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and the Random Number Gods do play dice with the universe (South Newlandia has found 3 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Newlandia's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Newlandia is ranked 282,426th in the world and 82nd in Esportiva for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -18.87 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
