The Darkening Federation of New Kowloon Bay is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Josephine Windham with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.272 billion Kowloonis 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Miltonford. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kowloon Bayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,143 trillion Bay Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 267,658 Bay Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kowloon Bay's national animal is the Burrowed Spotted Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kowlooni Christianity.

New Kowloon Bay is ranked 13,118th in the world and 136th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 368,949 Standard Monetary Units.
