New Kiwis

Population3.67 billion


CurrencyNew Zealand Dollar

The Commonwealth of New Kiwis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.67 billion New Kiwisians 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Education, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muffin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kiwisian economy, worth 645 trillion New Zealand Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 175,753 New Zealand Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

You can't spell society without CIS, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Kiwis's national animal is the Kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Kiwis is ranked 11,111th in the world and 9th in Right to Life for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 375.27 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
