The United Kingdoms of New Northwesteros is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Brian I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.973 billion Northwesterosi are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingslandia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.7%.

The powerhouse Northwesterosi economy, worth 932 trillion Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 116,971 Dragons, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

New legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending King Brian I", a generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages, it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, and the space program has been reduced to King Brian I's nephew playing with a cardboard space shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. New Northwesteros's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Northwesteros is ranked 138,031st in the world and 96th in Atlantian Oceania for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 30.66 Effective Tax Rate.
