New Appalachian Republic

Population187 million


The Republic of New Appalachian Republic is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 187 million New Appalachian Republicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Appalachian Republician economy, worth 5.79 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,983 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tightness of border controls in New Appalachian Republic leave a little to be desired, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown. New Appalachian Republic's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Appalachian Republic is ranked 85,652nd in the world and 2,564th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,502.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
