The Kingdom of Neo-St Petersburg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Nicholas Barden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.017 billion Petersburgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petersville. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Neo-St Petersburgian economy, worth 220 trillion New Rupees a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,025 New Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Petersville's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-St Petersburg's national animal is the Siberian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo-St Petersburg is ranked 17,189th in the world and 10th in The Alterran Republic for Most Pacifist, with 123.02 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
