The Arcadia of New Puruni is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Lilian with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.814 billion New Purunians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thicc City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Purunian economy, worth a remarkable 1,438 trillion headpats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 184,146 headpats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 766,766 per year while the poor average 28,909, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, all tariffs have been abolished, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime is totally unknown. New Puruni's national animal is the skeleton, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Puruni is ranked 72,343rd in the world and 2,543rd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,555.19 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
