The Arab Arbiter of Nueva Rico is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Umar Ibn al-Sa'id with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.054 billion Nueva Ricoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moncóvila. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuyorican economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion ridgers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,500 ridgers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, there's no such thing as a safe bet, moonshine and organized crime are on the rise ever since alcohol was banned, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nueva Rico's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sufism.

Nueva Rico is ranked 137,741st in the world and 35th in Ridgefield for Most Stationary, with 21.24288918232 Days.
