The Colony of The New North Carolina is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Noah Rucker with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.208 billion The NEW North carolinas are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New North Carolinan economy, worth 548 trillion Emeralds 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,433 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and all weapon research has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New North Carolina's national animal is the Axolotls, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The New North Carolina is ranked 18,898th in the world and 3rd in Canterbury for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,379.61 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
