Republic of New Atlantis

Population824 million



The Democratic Republic of Republic of New Atlantis is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 824 million New Atlantians 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pikapolis. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Republic of New Atlantisian economy, worth 65.9 trillion spankings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,979 spankings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of New Atlantis's national animal is the Gimp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of New Atlantis is ranked 134,957th in the world and 6,603rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -82.57 on the Hayek Index.
