The Slaver Guilds of New Servitude is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Slaver Servitudius with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.844 billion New Servitudeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Servitudia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Servitudean economy, worth 288 trillion Shackles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 156,193 Shackles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 989,524 per year while the poor average 10,257, a ratio of 96.5 to 1.

The government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. New Servitude's national animal is the Feral Slave, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Opressorism.

New Servitude is ranked 31,710th in the world and 122nd in The Black Hawks for Most Extreme, scoring 31.7 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
