New Caledonia Secundus

Population314 million


The Most Serene Republic of New Caledonia Secundus is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 314 million New Caledonia Secundusians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The powerhouse New Caledonia Secundusian economy, worth 30.3 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 96,504 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 424,747 per year while the poor average 13,763, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, there's nothing more rock-and-roll than absolute sobriety, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Caledonia Secundus's national animal is the Llama, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Caledonia Secundus is ranked 126,582nd in the world and 699th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,559.07 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
