The Borderlands of Newfatland is a huge, economically powerful nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 626 million, 625 million of whom are zombies, 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 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 134th in The North Pacific and 7,722nd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Newfatland is currently considering its options.
