The Democratic Republic of New Bandersnatch is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 378 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 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bandersnatchian economy, worth 19.5 trillion Carrolls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,471 Carrolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", royalist is the most offensive slur in the New Bandersnatchian language, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. 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 45,708th in the world and 2,175th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,401.93 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
