The Imperial Democratic States of Newam is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Kakoni with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.604 billion Newamians 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 large 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 76.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Newamian economy, worth 338 trillion Bit Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 129,845 Bit Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The only violent vigilantes are the ones in police uniforms, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Pearl City Times is sold out, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 10,862nd in the world and 579th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,424.87 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
