The Godforsaken Republic of New Kvenland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by People's Commissary Tova Olthuis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.077 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brödstad. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kvenlander economy, worth a remarkable 2,075 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,725 labor vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 180,038th in the world and 359th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.11 on the Rand Index.
