The New Tace

Population1.244 billion

LeaderRictor Von Tace IV


The Kingdom of The New Tace is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rictor Von Tace IV with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.244 billion New Taceans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taceanite. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Tacean economy, worth 140 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,014 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Tace's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Tace is ranked 84,592nd in the world and 4,123rd in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 83.68 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
