The Crown Plutocracy of Neuewland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Schmidt Johnson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.607 billion Neuew are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neuhamlet. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Neuew economy, worth a remarkable 3,432 trillion Gram Platinums a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 398,763 Gram Platinums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,923,843 per year while the poor average 48,054, a ratio of 40.0 to 1.

Kids feel more beat up than ever after a hard day at school, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection, and the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neuewland's national animal is the Neuew Ground Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sjaanism.

Neuewland is ranked 4,601st in the world and 11th in Anteria for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 61.31 Whatever.
