The Free City of Nelson

Population496 million

CapitalNelson City


The People's Republic of The Free City of Nelson is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its digital currency, compulsory vegetarianism, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 496 million Nelsonians 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelson City. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nelsonian economy, worth 42.5 trillion Commucoins 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. 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 85,706 Commucoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, vegetarianism is compulsory, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is almost non-existent. The Free City of Nelson's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Free City of Nelson is ranked 18,713th in the world and 30th in Conch Kingdom for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.36 Whatever.
