The Irradiated Wasteland of The New California Republic is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Kimball with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.458 billion New California Republicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shady Sands. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New California Republican economy, worth a remarkable 6,844 trillion NCR Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 370,799 NCR Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, President Kimball's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime is totally unknown. The New California Republic's national animal is the Brahmin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

The New California Republic is ranked 11,910th in the world and 691st in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,649.35 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
