The Empire of Newfoundlendland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 420 million Newfoundlendlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The Newfoundlendlandian economy, worth 22.0 trillion heavy iron bars 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 52,444 heavy iron bars, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, local government operates tolls on every village road, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Newfoundlendland. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newfoundlendland's national animal is the tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Newfoundlendland is ranked 231,221st in the world and 9,575th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
