The Agrarian Socialists of Newwelem is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 1.219 billion Newwelemians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Newwelemian economy, worth 40.6 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,317 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newwelem recently decided against having a capital city, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newwelem's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Newwelem is ranked 237,758th in the world and 192nd in Caer Sidi for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 44,193 Standard Monetary Units.
