Nueva Rico

Population9.292 billion

LeaderUmar Ibn al-Sa'id


The Enlightened Emirate of Nueva Rico is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Umar Ibn al-Sa'id with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.292 billion Nueva Ricoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moncóvila. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuyorican economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,981 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, endangered species face obesity instead of extinction, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nueva Rico's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Nueva Rico is ranked 225,445th in the world and 437th in Conch Kingdom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.22 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
