The Community of New Periapsis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Nathan Emari with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.302 billion Alterrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelina. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Periapsisian economy, worth 553 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,374 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime is totally unknown. New Periapsis's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Periapsis is ranked 6,496th in the world and 345th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
