The New Canterbury Order

Population4.491 billion


The No of The New Canterbury Order is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.491 billion no are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The all-consuming no economy, worth 459 trillion noes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 102,295 noes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 518,450 per year while the poor average 11,196, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

The public transport system has been eliminated, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto no beaches, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The New Canterbury Order's national animal is the no, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The New Canterbury Order is ranked 52,847th in the world and 3rd in Canterbury for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,843.92 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
