The New Enclave Of The Wasteland

Population230 million


The Armed Republic of The New Enclave Of The Wasteland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 230 million New Enclave Citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.

The strong New Enclave Citizen economy, worth 13.9 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,511 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists', politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Enclave Of The Wasteland's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The New Enclave Of The Wasteland is ranked 84,301st in the world and 4,858th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 28.79 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
