Greater New Cassandra

Population585 million

The United Socialist States of Greater New Cassandra is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 585 million Cassandrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basilreef. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cassandrian economy, worth 35.0 trillion star fragments a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,763 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Greater New Cassandra's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater New Cassandra's national animal is the barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater New Cassandra is ranked 6,057th in the world and 153rd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,952.58 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
