The Free Land of New Ulaidh is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, infamous sell-swords, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.583 billion Ulstermen enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The powerhouse Ulsterian economy, worth 289 trillion Punts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 111,889 Punts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 668,340 per year while the poor average 8,535, a ratio of 78.3 to 1.

The police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, and kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Ulaidh's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Ulaidh is ranked 106,613th in the world and 4,565th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,423.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
