The Colony of Eastern New Holland is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 1.669 billion Eastern New Hollandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Eastern New Hollandian economy, worth 49.9 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,909 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, Leader has just been declared ruler of Eastern New Holland in an international press conference, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern New Holland's national animal is the white-tailed deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
