Nuova Belgica

Population2.243 billion

CapitalBrussels-Antwerp Metropolis
LeaderLe Grand Jojo


The Confederacy of Nuova Belgica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Le Grand Jojo with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.243 billion Neo-Belges enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brussels-Antwerp Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nuova Belgican economy, worth 291 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,029 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nuova Belgica's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nuova Belgica is ranked 33,423rd in the world and 947th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 381.43418643752 Days.
