The United States of New Vooperia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.772 billion New Vooperians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse New Vooperian economy, worth 191 trillion Voops a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 108,018 Voops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 318,520 per year while the poor average 28,818, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Vooperia's national animal is the Voopeagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Vooperia is ranked 38,505th in the world and 76th in The United Federations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,909.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
