The Kingdom of Bagong Luzon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Ferdinand II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.639 billion New Filipinos 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."

The relatively small, 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 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Filipino economy, worth a remarkable 2,073 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 312,256 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", colonial subjects have Filipino culture shoved down their throats, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 28,465th in the world and 5th in West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,596.36 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
