The Re-unified Borderlands of Newfatland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, devout population of 22.112 billion Newfatlandians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RoboFrance 29. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Newfatlandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,497 trillion Jive Turkeys 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 Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 203,388 Jive Turkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfatland's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Horse Femmen, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of The Emperor.

Newfatland is ranked 5,239th in the world and 281st in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 124.94 quips per hour.
