“Endorse Esselman before Endorsing Others Or Get Kicked”
Regional Influence: Auxiliary
The Rude Lewd Invincible Refuge of CUP New Yorkers is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gordian with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.101 billion New York Confederates enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.9%.
The very strong a New York Confederate economy, worth a remarkable 7,584 trillion Silver Seers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 397,061 Silver Seers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,362,453 per year while the poor average 8,560, a ratio of 392 to 1.
Meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, Gordian has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. CUP New Yorkers's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
