The Imperial Democratic States of Newam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Kakoni with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.91 billion Newamians 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pearl city. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Newamian economy, worth 853 trillion Bit Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 144,334 Bit Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newam's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Word Of God.

Newam is ranked 127,992nd in the world and 2,851st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 239 billion Standard Monetary Units.
