New Grovershire

Population1.523 billion


The Kingdom of New Grovershire is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.523 billion New Grovershireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Grovershirean economy, worth 55.9 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,672 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and billions of dollars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Dove Nebula. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Grovershire's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Grovershire is ranked 161,000th in the world and 7,070th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
