The Borderlands of Newish New Things is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6 billion Newish New Thingsians 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 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 10%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Dark alleys and public toilets are filled with furtive sexual activities among teenagers and unmarried adults, only the wealthy vote, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 14,585th in the world for Nudest, with 210 Cheeks per Square Mile.
