New Gehenna

Population5.75 billion

LeaderFrost Carbon


The Federation of New Gehenna is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Frost Carbon with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.75 billion New Gehennans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sajuuk. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Gehennan economy, worth 700 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,754 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is something rotten in the state of New Gehenna, group hugs break out during floor votes, there's no such thing as bad publicity, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Gehenna's national animal is the Spinosaurus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Gehenna is ranked 6,899th in the world and 178th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,542.17 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
