The Democratic Republic of The New North Carolina is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Noah Rucker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.813 billion The New North carolinas are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 72.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New North Carolinan economy, worth 872 trillion Emeralds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,093 Emeralds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 71,078th in the world and 1,692nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,058.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
