The Rude Lewd Invincible Refuge of CUP New Yorkers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gordian with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.469 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 83.5%.

The very strong a New York Confederate economy, worth a remarkable 6,762 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 387,107 Silver Seers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,146,199 per year while the poor average 35,094, a ratio of 61.2 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 636th in the world and 8th in Eladen for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 24,173.57 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
