The Borderlands of Newfatland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.431 billion Newfatlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RoboFrance 29. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and Newfatland has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfatland's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Horse-Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Cult of The Emperor, and its currency is the Jive Turkey.

Newfatland is ranked 314th in The North Pacific and 12,328th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
