The Comforting Island Paradise of New Kowloon Bay is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Beachgoer Maxima II with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.833 billion Kowloonese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kowloon-By-The-Sea. The average income tax rate is 80.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kowloon Bayian economy, worth 274 trillion Bay Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 149,943 Bay Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Kowloon-By-The-Sea as a backdrop, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kowloon Bay's national animal is the Sandy Pandabear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Beachgoing.

New Kowloon Bay is ranked 188,526th in the world and 605th in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
