The Evil Cacklers of New Currents is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 648 million Currentians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Massacuie. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Currentian economy, worth 66.3 trillion pawns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 102,323 pawns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government pours millions of pawns into rehabilitation programs annually, military training in New Currents emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, the government is expanding hungrily in its conquest of bread, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Currents's national animal is the guy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Currents is ranked 97,943rd in the world and 128th in Karma for Most Authoritarian, with 660.46 milliStalins.
