New Van Buren

Population630 million

CapitalVan Buren

CurrencyO-Nella Rubel

The Commonwealth of New Van Buren is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 630 million Burenians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Van Buren. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The powerhouse Burenian economy, worth 56.1 trillion O-Nella Rubels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 89,006 O-Nella Rubels, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, people talk about things being better when men were men, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Van Buren's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Van Buren is ranked 150,608th in the world and 7,953rd in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.71 Kickbacks Per Hour.
