The Most Serene Republic of New Sportland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.559 billion New Sportlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant New Sportlandian economy, worth 144 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 16,850 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Sportland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Sportland is ranked 147,265th in the world and 67th in Esportiva for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
