The Republic of New Alsterdam is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 600 million New Alsterdamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 44.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong New Alsterdamian economy, worth 35.8 trillion Aldimes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,603 Aldimes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in New Alsterdam to be bombproof, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Alsterdam's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
