Neo Colorado

Population14.556 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.556 billion Neo Coloradoans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stilwater. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Neo Coloradoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,504 trillion Deenihans a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,353 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political detractors refer to Arkle Scribe as 'that Bigtopian puppet', bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Colorado's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo Colorado is ranked 624th in the world and 39th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
