The Social Democracy of New Albuquerque is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Skyler White with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.365 billion Albuquerqueans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Alamos. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The strong New Albuquerquean economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion Buttcoins 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 and Cheese Exports. Average income is 92,407 Buttcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, on-duty Air New Albuquerque flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, the NABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Albuquerque's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Albuquerque is ranked 156,148th in the world and 8,089th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -84.12 on the Rand Index.
