The Military state of New-Korean union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Li Zhang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.186 billion New-Koreans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 평서울. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New-Korean economy, worth 152 trillion Won a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 128,232 Won, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,185 per year while the poor average 35,513, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New-Korean union's national animal is the Panthera tigris altaica, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New-Korean union is ranked 145,107th in the world and 567th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
