The State of New Horensian Kingdom is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sparta I with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.023 billion Horensians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrasfield. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Horensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,783 trillion Horensian Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 222,259 Horensian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The statue in the Schmidt Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Horensian Kingdom's national animal is the Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Horensian Kingdom is ranked 159,852nd in the world and 291st in Spiritus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.68 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
