Almonaster Nuevo

Population32.565 billion

LeaderAlejandro de las Torres Altas


The Zombie Hunters of Almonaster Nuevo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alejandro de las Torres Altas with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.565 billion Nuevanos hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mizumigari. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nuevan economy, worth an astonishing 11,869 trillion fracts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 364,489 fracts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snap elections are called over every minor impasse, graffiti graces every city's streets, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Almonaster Nuevo's national animal is the loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Almonaster Nuevo is ranked 122nd in the world and 2nd in Canada for Most Influential, scoring 356,222 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
