The Rustling Leaves of New Kvenland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by People's Commissary Tova Olthuis with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.3 billion New Kvenlanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brödstad. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kvenlander economy, worth a remarkable 2,748 trillion labor vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 179,632 labor vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, a government program is underway to revitalize New Kvenland's beaches, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime is totally unknown. New Kvenland's national animal is the caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sarkicism.

New Kvenland is ranked 6,285th in the world and 68th in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 88.78 Bank.
