The Dominion of New Leicestershire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 27.158 billion New Leicestershireans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Leicestershirean economy, worth a remarkable 3,628 trillion NL Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 133,598 NL Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 380,733 per year while the poor average 37,387, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

Guns are banned, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. New Leicestershire's national animal is the Osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Leicestershire is ranked 128,485th in the world and 13th in Antarctic Oasis for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 57.75 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
