The Thalassocratic Republic of Neu Leonstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Chancellor with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and deadly medical pandemics. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 23.89 billion Neu Leonsteinians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahlen. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Neu Leonsteinian economy, worth a remarkable 7,344 trillion leonsteiner marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 307,409 leonsteiner marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,175,181 per year while the poor average 55,568, a ratio of 21.1 to 1.

Visions of giant pink eagles are a common side effect after Neu Leonsteinians eat their meals, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Neu Leonstein's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Neu Leonstein is ranked 172,527th in the world and 6,036th in Balder for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -42.54 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
