The Newspaper Boy

Population492 million


The Republic of The Newspaper Boy is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 492 million Newspaper Boyians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Welfare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 20.9%.

The Newspaper Boyian economy, worth 26.1 trillion News a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 53,068 News, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. The Newspaper Boy's national animal is the Newspaper, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Newspaper Boy is ranked 140,647th in the world and 1st in The Independent Newspaper for Smartest Citizens, with 20.27 Quips Per Hour.
