The Royal Kingdom of New Gilboa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Silas Benjamin with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.565 billion New Gilboans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shiloh. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient New Gilboan economy, worth an astonishing 10,154 trillion laurels a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 355,479 laurels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is wading into dangerous waters, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and a few people seem to spend their whole time complaining. Crime is totally unknown. New Gilboa's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

New Gilboa is ranked 219,944th in the world and 1,266th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
