The United Socialist States of New Schoeneberg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elected Great Leader Connor with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.744 billion New Schoenebergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gasometer. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Schoenebergian economy, worth 146 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 83,754 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Schoeneberg's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

New Schoeneberg is ranked 10,522nd in the world and 341st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,561.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
