Nieuw Lucht

The Queen's State of Nieuw Lucht is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, cynical population of 9.006 billion Nieuw Luchtians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The thriving Nieuw Luchtian economy, worth 272 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 30,295 betales, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, elections have been outlawed, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nieuw Lucht's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Nieuw Lucht is ranked 198,921st in the world and 12th in Iowa for Safest, scoring 8.22 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
