The Republic of New Lundus is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 514 million New Lundians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackridge. The average income tax rate is 37.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lundusian economy, worth 67.0 trillion Fuel Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 130,315 Fuel Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing New Lundus are beset by rebels, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, and at least 4 unique companies in New Lundus claim to sell Eckie-Cola. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lundus's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Lundus is ranked 226,748th in the world and 9,353rd in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.57 average smiles per day.
