The Democratic Republic of The New Found Land is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Glom with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.71 billion Newfoundlanders 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Johns. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Found Landian economy, worth 190 trillion Handshakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 70,299 Handshakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Found Land's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is George Michael.

The New Found Land is ranked 166,322nd in the world and 8,970th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -16.04 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
