The Schizophrenic states of New Bismuthium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dababy with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 4.236 billion Vismuttis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chryst. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vismuttian economy, worth 834 trillion Chicken wings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 196,909 Chicken wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, some magnifier-wielding Vismuttis say Dababy seems a little lacking in something, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Vismuttian weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown. New Bismuthium's national animal is the Albino Slug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Holy winged blue scaled platypus.

New Bismuthium is ranked 226,329th in the world and 7,385th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
