New Samon

Population4.814 billion


The People's Republic of New Samon is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 4.814 billion Samons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonian economy, worth 598 trillion pearls 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 Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,276 pearls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown. New Samon's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Samon is ranked 9,127th in the world and 45th in The Internationale for Smartest Citizens, with 96.68 quips per hour.
