The Democratic City State of Nieuw Gent is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Council of 1000 with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.161 billion Nieuwe Gentenaars are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuw Gent. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ne nieuwe gentenaar economy, worth 202 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 93,515 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Nieuw Gent, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nieuw Gent's national animal is the Crowned Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nieuw Gent is ranked 215,885th in the world and 1,153rd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
