The Republic of New Bawkie 6 is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.919 billion New Bawkie 6ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 33.6%.

The powerhouse New Bawkie 6ian economy, worth 528 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 89,364 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bawkie 6's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Bawkie 6 is ranked 97,360th in the world and 238th in Bawkie for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
