The Unified Catholic Republic of Newellington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Unnamed Grand Vizier with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.468 billion Newellingtonians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capitol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The all-consuming Newellingtonian economy, worth 153 trillion Newoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 62,288 Newoes, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Newo battlesuits, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Sir Unnamed Grand Vizier. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Newellington's national animal is the Robot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Newellington is ranked 4,952nd in the world and 77th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,455.89 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
