Nueva Rico

Population7.577 billion

LeaderUmar Ibn al-Sa'id


The Enlightened Emirate of Nueva Rico is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Umar Ibn al-Sa'id with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.577 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, outspoken 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 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuyorican economy, worth a remarkable 1,164 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,648 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government defends a woman's right to choose, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Nueva Ricoans, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Umar Ibn al-Sa'id's bedroom. 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 62,211th in the world and 130th in Conch Kingdom for Most Extreme, scoring 24.17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
