The Borderlands of Newish New Things is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.143 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 concentrates mainly on Religion & Spirituality, although Commerce and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newish New Things City. The average income tax rate is 13%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

All news sources are under strict government control, many of the country's largest dumps can be seen from space, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. 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 115,597th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -306 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
