The Free Republic of NewLakotah is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.631 billion Lakotah hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Omaha. The average income tax rate is 65.6%.

The strong Lakotah economy, worth 564 trillion dollars 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 Book Publishing, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. 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 58,635 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. NewLakotah's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

NewLakotah is ranked 138,951st in the world and 94th in Canada for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
