The Gingrich of Newtered States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Newt Gingrich with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.723 billion Newtered Statesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of GingrichTown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.
The thriving Newtered Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion Gingriches a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 80,717 Gingriches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,997 per year while the poor average 11,244, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.
There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, Newt Gingrich has just been declared ruler of Newtered States in an international press conference, and Gingrichism has been named as Newtered States's national religion. Crime is a problem. Newtered States's national animal is the Newt, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gingrichism.
