New Belia

Population6.853 billion

CapitalNew Belia City
LeaderLeader Harwell


The Constitutional Monarchy of New Belia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader Harwell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.853 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken 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 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Belian economy, worth a remarkable 1,214 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 177,171 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime is totally unknown. New Belia's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Belia is ranked 199,658th in the world and 6,277th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -9.21 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
