The Federal Republic of Neuchateau is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ulrich XIX Sigiboldide with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 904 million Neocastlians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hauterive. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neocastlian economy, worth 94.3 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,319 Kreuzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, all recreational drugs are legal, 'Let's Get It On' has jumped to #1 on the billboard charts, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 29,887th in the world and 367th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 104,319.62 Standard Monetary Units.
