The  ★  of New Fakeland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ★Fake★ with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.904 billion New Fakelandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fakeland City. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Fakelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,365 trillion  ★ -pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,830  ★ -pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Fakeland's national animal is the ★-beast, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Fakeland is ranked 3,174th in the world and 148th in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
