Almonaster Nuevo

Population29.222 billion

LeaderAlejandro de las Torres Altas


The Zombie hunters of Almonaster Nuevo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alejandro de las Torres Altas with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.222 billion Nuevanos hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Environment and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mizumigari. The average income tax rate is 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nuevan economy, worth an astonishing 10,245 trillion Fracts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 350,604 Fracts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, and the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Almonaster Nuevo's national animal is the Loon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Almonaster Nuevo is ranked 492nd in the world and 3rd in Canada for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 84.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
