The Federal Republic of Neuchateau is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ulrich XIX Sigiboldide with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.261 billion Neocastlians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hauterive. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Neocastlian economy, worth 336 trillion Kreuzers 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,618 Kreuzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, surveillance cameras are banned, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Neocastlians's kindness. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neuchateau's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neuchateau is ranked 3,570th in the world and 51st in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,144.31 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
