The Republic of Newfound Prospero is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 318 million Newfound Prosperoans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.1%.

The very strong Newfound Prosperoan economy, worth 24.1 trillion Baks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,754 Baks, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfound Prospero's national animal is the Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Newfound Prospero is ranked 122,918th in the world and 5,330th in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 30.89 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
