The United Socialist States of New Nathanland is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 352 million Woofies are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happy Puppy Palace. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Woofielander economy, worth 17.9 trillion Puppy Pieces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 50,750 Puppy Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school bands practice by moonlight, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, the government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens, and the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Leader in ermine and velvet garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Nathanland's national animal is the Puppy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Nathanland is ranked 32,362nd in the world and 1st in KittyPuppy Alliance for Most Patriotic, with 26.62 flags saluted per person per day.
