The Armed Republic of New Hellshire is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 586 million New Hellshireans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix city. The average income tax rate is 51.2%.

The frighteningly efficient New Hellshirean economy, worth 70.3 trillion Platons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 119,953 Platons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, Jennifer Government is banned, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Hellshire's national animal is the Thunderbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Hellshire is ranked 250,950th in the world and 346th in The Black Hawks for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8.32 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
