The United Kingdom of New Baekje is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 280 million New Baekjeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wiryeseong. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Baekjean economy, worth 25.7 trillion Jeons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,861 Jeons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, bins outnumber trees in city parks, foreign despots proudly bandstand on New Baekjean airwaves, and videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Baekje's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Baekje is ranked 32,576th in the world and 1,426th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 59.73 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
