The Country Shaped Object of Newberia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Competent Shaped Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.708 billion People Shaped Persons are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Newberian economy, worth 439 trillion Money Shaped Papers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,046 Money Shaped Papers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Newberia's national animal is the Majestic Shaped Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Believable Shaped Religion.

Newberia is ranked 135,947th in the world and 155th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Lowest Crime Rates, with 59.73 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
