The Free Land of Devia New is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 179 million Devians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Devian economy, worth 18.6 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 103,728 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 377,657 per year while the poor average 20,255, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

Doctors are trying to diagnose diseases by looking at their patients' Snipchat pictures, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Devia New's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Devia New is ranked 10,551st in the world and 30th in Texas for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,657.17 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
