The Irradiated Wasteland of The New California Republic is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kimball with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.05 billion New California Republicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shady Sands. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New California Republican economy, worth a remarkable 8,162 trillion NCR Dollars 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 370,178 NCR Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", group hugs break out during floor votes, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. Crime is totally unknown. The New California Republic's national animal is the Brahmin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

The New California Republic is ranked 57,515th in the world and 1,873rd in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 57.08 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
