The Old Man and the Hawks of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate population of 13.907 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Equality and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 97%. 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.

Military service is compulsory, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New South Arctica's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Cult of Horus, and its currency is the ice cube.

New South Arctica is ranked 45th in The Black Hawks and 117,700th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -7 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
