The Constitutional Monarchy of Newstro is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by John with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.912 billion Newstronians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newstro City. The average income tax rate is 89.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Newstroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,130 trillion Newtons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 191,219 Newtons, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", all recreational drugs are legal, torture is illegal, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newstro's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newstro is ranked 3,586th in the world and 155th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 19,079.19 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
