The Democratic People's Republic of New Moravia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nerys Broughton with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.184 billion New Moravians 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 is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Education are secondary priorities. 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.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, school uniforms are compulsory, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. 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 toxic air pollution, its national religion is Misanthropism, and its currency is the broken dream.

New Moravia is ranked 17th in The Ascendancy and 107,037th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -16 on the Hayek Index.
