The People's State of Newsomist Commiefornia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade-Governor Gavin Newsom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.538 billion Commiefornians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newsomgrad. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Commiefornian economy, worth 54.2 trillion Intersectional Victimhood Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 35,241 Intersectional Victimhood Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newsomist Commiefornia's national animal is the Grizzly Bear on Welfare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism-Newsomism.

Newsomist Commiefornia is ranked 230,849th in the world and 11th in Wastelands of NationStates for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,229.46 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
