The Nero

Population161 million

The Free Land of The Nero is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 161 million Neroans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Neroan economy, worth 2.31 trillion Pats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 14,365 Pats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, news headlines suggest that Leader has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nero's national animal is the Ancient Patuckl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Nero is ranked 172,061st in the world and 24th in Lily for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 551.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
