New Gehenna

Population7.368 billion

LeaderFrost Carbon


The Federation of New Gehenna is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Frost Carbon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.368 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sajuuk. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Gehennan economy, worth 913 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 common. Average income is an impressive 124,028 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 193,615th in the world and 7,987th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
