New Flos

Population163 million


The Most Serene Republic of New Flos is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 163 million New Flosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Flosian economy, worth 10.1 trillion florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,868 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Flos's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Flos is ranked 30,838th in the world and 1,665th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 68.04 Years.
