Greater New Cassandra

Population434 million

The United Socialist States of Greater New Cassandra is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 434 million Cassandrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basilreef. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cassandrian economy, worth 24.1 trillion star fragments a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,589 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, Greater New Cassandra's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and builders across Greater New Cassandra are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater New Cassandra's national animal is the barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater New Cassandra is ranked 50,174th in the world and 1,496th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 63.73 on the Human Development Index.
