The Vaunted Vault of New Fort Knox is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.559 billion New Fort Knoxians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Administration and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Dorado. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient New Fort Knoxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,259 trillion goldpieces a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 115,511 goldpieces, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 698,710 per year while the poor average 8,543, a ratio of 81.8 to 1.

Asking what someone does for a living is considered a faux pax for being potentially jobist, satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Fort Knox's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is greed.

New Fort Knox is ranked 103,312th in the world and 180th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,651.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
