The News from the NS Left of R-B is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Editor-in-Chief with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 6.753 billion journalists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Printing Press. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant journalistic economy, worth 110 trillion ink cartridges a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 16,315 ink cartridges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

R-B has designated the Printing Press as its capital city, journalism has been named as R-B's national religion, and the Editor-in-Chief has just been declared ruler of R-B in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. R-B's national animal is the squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is journalism.

R-B is ranked 169,648th in the world and 3rd in NSLeft for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 5 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
