New Xobalon

Population258 million


The Kingdom of New Xobalon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 258 million New Xobalonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Xobalonian economy, worth 15.3 trillion crowns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 59,219 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Xobalon's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Xobalon is ranked 150,335th in the world and 5,653rd in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 12.38 Atheism Rate.
