The Nagashistan of Newhalla is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by God-King Skeletonman with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.243 billion Hallans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central-Sector 001. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hallan economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion Halians a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 142,063 Halians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Central-Sector 001 spends billions upgrading public transport, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. Crime is totally unknown. Newhalla's national animal is the Liljörmungandr serpents, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newhalla is ranked 134,337th in the world and 96th in Social Liberal Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
