The Federal Moralistic Democracy of Newcastle Mountains is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 591 million Newmountainishes are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mandeville. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Newcastle Mountainsian economy, worth 47.2 trillion Newcastledollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,926 Newcastledollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, Newcastle Mountains is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newcastle Mountains's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newcastle Mountains is ranked 49,631st in the world and 1st in The New Hope States for Largest Governments, scoring 21.4 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
