The Republic of Bagong Estado is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 384 million Filipinos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manila. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Filipino economy, worth 21.9 trillion Filipino Pisoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,978 Filipino Pisoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year-old Luna Lisa, escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagong Estado's national animal is the Carabao, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bagong Estado is ranked 117,558th in the world and 32nd in Democritus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 191.87 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
