The Empire of Newtdom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Newt XX with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.972 billion Newtdomians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Newtdomian economy, worth a remarkable 8,780 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 283,510 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,505,307 per year while the poor average 28,210, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Newtdom's national animal is the Griffon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Newtdom is ranked 17,772nd in the world and 13th in Gholgoth for Most Cultured, scoring 87 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
