Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borderlands of Newfatland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.993 billion Newfatlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RoboFrance 29. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Newfatlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,220 trillion Jive Turkeys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,137 Jive Turkeys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfatland's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Horse-Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of The Emperor.

Newfatland is ranked 136,502nd in the world and 6,946th in The North Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 15.79 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
