New Periapsis

Population3.874 billion

LeaderDirector Nathan Emari


The Community of New Periapsis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Nathan Emari with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.874 billion Alterrans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelina. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Periapsisian economy, worth 416 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,407 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. Crime is totally unknown. New Periapsis's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Periapsis is ranked 53,875th in the world and 2,517th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
