Neue Ost Fluch

Population1.17 billion


CurrencyFlüche Mark

The Republic of Neue Ost Fluch is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.17 billion Ost Flüche 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haarneuzen. The average income tax rate is 11.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ost Fluch economy, worth 66.6 trillion Flüche Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 56,914 Flüche Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Neue Ost Fluch's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Neue Ost Fluch is ranked 29,727th in the world and 1,227th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,047.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
