The Irradiated Wasteland of The New California Republic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Kimball with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.984 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, with Industry, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, 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 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New California Republican economy, worth a remarkable 6,689 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 371,987 NCR Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. 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 163,757th in the world and 6,108th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -48.67 on the Rand Index.
