New Samon

Population2.21 billion

Leaderthe Revolutionary Council of New Samon


The Red Union of New Samon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Revolutionary Council of New Samon with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.21 billion Samons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whalingrad. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonian economy, worth 252 trillion pearls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,451 pearls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, mollycoddled youths run the country, and psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests. Crime is totally unknown. New Samon's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Samon is ranked 66,901st in the world and 134th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 252 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
