The Borderlands of Newfatland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.18 billion Newfatlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 135th in The North Pacific and 4,515th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 254 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
