The United States of New Filippe is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Nicholas DeMarcois with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.618 billion Filippians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avrecenia. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Filippian economy, worth 671 trillion New Filippian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 185,494 New Filippian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Filippian weed picker are way up, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. Crime is totally unknown. New Filippe's national animal is the Golden Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Herionism.

New Filippe is ranked 60,627th in the world and 57th in Refugia for Most Patriotic, with 17.26 flags saluted per person per day.
