The Rude Lewd Invincible Refuge of CUP New Yorkers is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gordian with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.101 billion New York Confederates enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.9%.

The very strong a New York Confederate economy, worth a remarkable 7,584 trillion Silver Seers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 397,061 Silver Seers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,362,453 per year while the poor average 8,560, a ratio of 392 to 1.

Meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, Gordian has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. CUP New Yorkers's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CUP New Yorkers is ranked 2,989th in the world and 13th in Eladen for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,657.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
