McNewland

The Free Land of McNewland is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29 million McNewlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The powerhouse McNewlandian economy, worth 2.36 trillion monies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 81,247 monies, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, no one engages in 'locker room talk' any more, and mollycoddled youths run the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. McNewland's national animal is the unicorn.

McNewland is ranked 31,877th in the world and 10th in Taijitu for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,604.55 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
