Never was New England

Population2.258 billion

LeaderPrime Minister John Goodman


The Commonwealth of Never was New England is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Goodman with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.258 billion Never was New Englandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Never was New Englandian economy, worth 182 trillion Quans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 80,667 Quans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, the question of 'what is Prime Minister John Goodman's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Never was New England's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None.

Never was New England is ranked 192,687th in the world and 6,290th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.71 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
