The Corporate Assembly of North Newlandishforth is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Corporate Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.837 billion Newlandishforthians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Venice. The average income tax rate is 10.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Newlandishforthian economy, worth 676 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 176,189 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown. North Newlandishforth's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult Of The Supreme Being.

North Newlandishforth is ranked 61,918th in the world and 2,410th in Osiris for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,217.42 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
