The Federal Republic of New New Capston is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.268 billion Capstonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to the Environment, with areas such as Commerce and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadmia. The average income tax rate is 46%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.
New New Capston has designated Cadmia as its capital city. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New New Capston's national animal is the Pokemon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Gold.
New New Capston is ranked 73,367th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 11 Dawkins.
