Nueva Rico

Population6.19 billion

LeaderKuresh Ali


The Irate Instigators of Nueva Rico is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kuresh Ali with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.19 billion Nueva Ricoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moncóvila. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuyorican economy, worth 905 trillion ridgers 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. Average income is an impressive 146,354 ridgers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, books are so highly regarded in Nueva Rico that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime 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 Transcendentalism.

Nueva Rico is ranked 29,231st in the world and 696th in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
