The Republic of New American Nations is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.14 billion New American Nationsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New American Nationsian economy, worth 503 trillion Golden Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,871 Golden Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New American Nations's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Texas.

New American Nations is ranked 27,986th in the world and 732nd in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 73.24 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
