The Democratic Republic of New Bandersnatch is a large, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 56 million New Bandersnatchians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bandersnatchian economy, worth 2.81 trillion Carrolls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,217 Carrolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bandersnatch's national animal is the Jabberwock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Bandersnatch is ranked 83,718th in the world and 4,558th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 63.84 on the Hayek Index.
