New Alwerphora

Population178 million


The United Socialist States of New Alwerphora is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 178 million New Alwerphorans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish New Alwerphoran economy, worth 3.93 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 22,093 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air New Alwerphora flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, royalist is the most offensive slur in the New Alwerphoran language, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Alwerphora's national animal is the cobra.

New Alwerphora is ranked 79,927th in the world and 4,665th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
