The Democratic People's Republic of New Moravia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Nerys Broughton with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.674 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 concentrates mainly on 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 95%. 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.

Only government officials may operate computers, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 68th in The Ascendancy and 110,720th in the world for Best Weather, with -763 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
