The Misspelled Best Girl of Neoth298 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate population of 2.099 billion Neoth298ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 32.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Neoth298ian economy, worth 111 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,896 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, military spending is on the increase, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, and saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neoth298's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Neoth298 is ranked 177,914th in the world and 4,153rd in Alliance of Supreme Powers for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -5 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
