The Constitutional Monarchy of Newstro is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.721 billion Newstronians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newstro City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Newstroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 trillion Newtons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,452 Newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and the Newstro Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newstro's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newstro is ranked 18,987th in the world and 1,083rd in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 120.73 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
