Nueva Rico

Population7.617 billion

LeaderUmar Ibn al-Sa'id


The Enlightened Emirate of Nueva Rico is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Umar Ibn al-Sa'id with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.617 billion Nueva Ricoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moncóvila. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuyorican economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 trillion dinars 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,623 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Nueva Ricoans, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Umar Ibn al-Sa'id's bedroom, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Nueva Rico as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nueva Rico's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Nueva Rico is ranked 205,245th in the world and 412th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -24.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
