The Borderlands of Newfatland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 18.699 billion Newfatlandians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RoboFrance 29. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Newfatlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,864 trillion Jive Turkeys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 206,674 Jive Turkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', and religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfatland's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of The Emperor.

Newfatland is ranked 203,908th in the world and 8,959th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.51 Crimes Per Hour.
