The Shroom Empire of New Mushroom Kingdom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kid-Emperor Napoleon II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.308 billion Mushrooms are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toad Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,307 trillion mushroom coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,820 mushroom coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 900,578 per year while the poor average 28,477, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Mushroom Kingdom's national animal is the mushroom, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Mushroom Kingdom is ranked 66,478th in the world and 1st in Vissella for Most Authoritarian, with 0.29 Stalins.
