The City and Republic of New Adelaide is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mayor Anna Larsen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.397 billion Adelaideans 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Adelaide. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Adelaidean economy, worth a remarkable 1,284 trillion Adelaide Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,911 Adelaide Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of New Adelaide's radio stations, biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Adelaide's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Adelaide is ranked 16,964th in the world and 14th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 76.88 Effective Tax Rate.
