The Republic of New Zeelund is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.16 billion New Zeelunders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auckland. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiwi economy, worth 304 trillion New Zeelund Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,148 New Zeelund Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, economists claim no news is good news, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Zeelund's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Zeelund is ranked 138,648th in the world and 10th in Anglospheric Empire for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 231.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
