The Burgeois Crowned Republic of The New True Cross is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.118 billion Burgoignacs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vilauristre. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New True Crossian economy, worth a remarkable 1,753 trillion Imperial Thalers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,007 Imperial Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, and attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams. Crime is totally unknown. The New True Cross's national animal is the Albatroaz, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New True Cross is ranked 241,933rd in the world and 27th in Greater Ixnay for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 19.49 Whatever.
