The Republic of Newer Lunar is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-working, devout population of 576 million Newer Lunarians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The strong Newer Lunarian economy, worth 31.1 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,932 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newer Lunar's national animal is the Batpony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newer Lunar is ranked 99,263rd in the world and 115th in The Black Hawks for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
