The People’s Republic of Nextopia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.099 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people’s right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Public Transport are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.
The government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and Nextopia is notorious for its citizens’ infidelity. Crime — especially youth-related — is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nextopia’s national animal is the rat, which frolics freely in the nation’s many lush forests, and its currency is the whuffie.
Nextopia is ranked 329th in the region and 11,788th in the world for Most Cultured.//nationstates
