The Democratic Republic of New Dawns is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 7 million New Dawnsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The fair New Dawnsian economy, worth 256 billion petals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,641 petals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Dawns's national animal is the fox.
New Dawns is a new member on the forums and 10000 Islands. I was very impressed how quickly they signed up to the forum, this shows their great enthusiasm and willingness to get involved! I know they will become a great part of this community! [/i]
