The Armed Republic States of New Selkirk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Robby California with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.744 billion Dreddeds 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreadd City. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Selkirkian economy, worth 254 trillion Imperial Gold Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 145,986 Imperial Gold Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Selkirk's national animal is the Juicer-Dreddz, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Selkirk is ranked 56,105th in the world and 1,242nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,054.88 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
