The Democratic People's Republic of New Moravia is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Nerys Broughton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.09 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalassa. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Computers are widely considered to be the "devil magic of heathens", government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and children as young as eight can be found working in factories. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. New Moravia's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Misanthropism, and its currency is the broken dream.

New Moravia is ranked 76th in The Ascendancy and 111,133rd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
