New Belia

The Constitutional Monarchy of New Belia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader Harwell with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.235 billion New Belians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Belia City. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Belian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,058 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and soup kitchens are the only things doing roaring business. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Belia's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Belia is ranked 118,399th in the world and 878th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 307 billion Standard Monetary Units.
