The Social Democracy of New Albuquerque is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Skyler White with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 15.087 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 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 96.3%.

The powerhouse New Albuquerquean economy, worth a remarkable 1,762 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. Average income is an impressive 116,799 Buttcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Skyler White's wardrobe, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. 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 105,633rd in the world and 4,499th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 37.15 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
