The Kingdom of Bagong Luzon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Ferdinand II with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.313 billion New Filipinos are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manila. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Filipino economy, worth 519 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,732 Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 560,715 per year while the poor average 31,450, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagong Luzon's national animal is the Carabao, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Bagong Luzon is ranked 8,181st in the world and 2nd in West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,966.31 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
