The Exalted Government of Neatlir

“Freedom to Southern Africa”

Category: New York Times Democracy

Regional Influence: Power

Location: Democratic Republic of Southern Africa



Population3.469 billion


The Exalted Government of Neatlir is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.469 billion Southern Africans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.5%.

The strong African economy, worth 148 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 42,782 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 140,597 per year while the poor average 9,760, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters. Crime is moderate. Neatlir's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neatlir is ranked 86,100th in the world and 4th in Democratic Republic of Southern Africa for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,185.6 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.

Largest Trout Fishing Sector: 6,444th
