The Dictatorship of NewBlackStation is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 384 million Oskoms have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pushkinskaya-Chekhovskaya-Tverskaya. The average income tax rate is 59.0%.

The powerhouse Oskomian economy, worth 23.8 trillion Military Grade Rounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 61,899 Military Grade Rounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and NewBlackStation has designated Pushkinskaya-Chekhovskaya-Tverskaya as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NewBlackStation's national animal is the Anomalies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NewBlackStation is ranked 95,231st in the world and 2,897th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.84 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
