The Commonwealth of New Provenance is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 288 million New Provenants have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Provenant economy, worth 22.2 trillion Provenant marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,207 Provenant marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and most barbers are also surgeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Provenance's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Provenance is ranked 133,178th in the world and 99th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 425.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
