Neo Colorado

Population13.297 billion

LeaderArkle Scribe


The United Socialist States of Neo Colorado is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arkle Scribe with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.297 billion Neo Coloradoans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stilwater. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Neo Coloradoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion Deenihans a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,116 Deenihans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and political detractors refer to Arkle Scribe as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Colorado's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo Colorado is ranked 137,921st in the world and 6,239th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 32.44 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
