New Kronos

Population332 million


The Republic of New Kronos is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 332 million Klingons 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 Administration, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 48.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Kronosian economy, worth 10.6 trillion Talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,964 Talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kronos's national animal is the Targ, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Kronos is ranked 49,569th in the world and 2,015th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,814.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
