The Turtle Isles of Eastern New England is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nicholas with a fair hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.53 billion New Englishmen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New English economy, worth 307 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,693 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the comic book series 'Nicholas and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern New England's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Eastern New England is ranked 156,487th in the world and 719th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 259.99 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
