The Federal Republic of Neuchateau is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ulrich XIX Sigiboldide with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 3.178 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 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Neocastlian economy, worth 479 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 150,904 Kreuzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, and beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially. 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 209,531st in the world and 1,220th in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
