The Imperial Democratic States of Newam is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Kakoni with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.742 billion Newamians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pearl city. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Newamian economy, worth 686 trillion Bit Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,688 Bit Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the latest political memes depict King Kakoni as an overly-choreographed robot, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newam's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Word Of God.

Newam is ranked 181,603rd in the world and 7,912th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.29 Obesity Rate.
