The Corporate Assembly of North Newlandishforth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Corporate Council with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.336 billion Newlandishforthians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Venice. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Newlandishforthian economy, worth 224 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,851 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 881,877 per year while the poor average 17,072, a ratio of 51.7 to 1.

Groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, and citizens must pay to enjoy North Newlandishforth's pristine beaches. Crime is totally unknown. North Newlandishforth's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult Of The Supreme Being.

North Newlandishforth is ranked 144,153rd in the world and 4,594th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -8.94 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
