Neu California

The Olde Red Republic of Neu California is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Antonio Villaraigosa with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.414 billion Neu Californians 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, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but sluggish Neu Californian economy, worth 626 trillion Californias a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,124 Californias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, and parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neu California's national animal is the Crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Neu California is ranked 5,027th in the world and 263rd in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,689.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
