The Borderlands of Newish New Things is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.271 billion Newish New Thingsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Commerce and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newish New Things City. The average income tax rate is 19%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Newish New Things's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Golden Chameleon.

Newish New Things is ranked 4th in Keglen and 111,161st in the world for Best Weather, with -941 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
