The Turtle Isles of Eastern New England is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nicholas with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.366 billion New Englishmen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New English economy, worth 284 trillion dollars 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,271 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, Nicholas lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern New England's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Eastern New England is ranked 62,371st in the world and 426th in 10000 Islands for Highest Economic Output, with 284 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
