The Republic of Neuer California is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 572 million Neuer Californians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Neuer Californian economy, worth 35.5 trillion Calis a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,062 Calis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, political clichés like "band-aid solutions" and "adrenaline shots to the economy" are headed for the dumpster, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neuer California's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Neuer California is ranked 25,723rd in the world and 753rd in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 52.16 quips per hour.
