The Turbulent Territories of New England Confederacy is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gilligan Loomis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.922 billion Puritans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The all-consuming New English economy, worth 298 trillion New English Cents a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 155,070 New English Cents, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 819,017 per year while the poor average 15,601, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

Disaster victims are viewed with disdain, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. New England Confederacy's national animal is the Victoria Crowned Pigeon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Puritanism.

New England Confederacy is ranked 16,681st in the world and 11th in Northern Utopia for Most Influential, scoring 1,743 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
