The Smartest Egg in the Nest of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.825 billion Arctichawkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The large but stagnant Arctichawkian economy, worth 159 trillion ice cubes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 8,963 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in New South Arctica to be bombproof, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is The Cult of Horus.

New South Arctica is ranked 274th in The Black Hawks and 131,122nd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -185 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
