The Imperial Democratic States of Newam is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Kakoni with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.237 billion Newamians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pearl city. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Newamian economy, worth 903 trillion Bit Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 144,858 Bit Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, replacement organs are grown in vats, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newam's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Word Of God.

Newam is ranked 233,680th in the world and 8,770th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -344.01 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
