We welcome The Fiefdom of NewZooland Vipernomics (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=NewZooland+Vipernomics), as the 219th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Fiefdom of NewZooland Vipernomics is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 40%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Soda Sales.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. NewZooland Vipernomics's national animal is the current government, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the floating crazily.
