The Borderlands of Newfatland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by THE Cybernetic Ghost of The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, devout population of 19.903 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Newfatlandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,035 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 202,734 Jive Turkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, and they who do not work shall not eat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 237,406th in the world and 9,888th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 20.48 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
