The Democratic Republic of La Isla Nueva is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President John Wilddog with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.128 billion Isla Nuevans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estonteco. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isla Nuevan economy, worth 602 trillion Isla Nuevan pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,045 Isla Nuevan pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Isla Nueva's national animal is the wild dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

La Isla Nueva is ranked 2,780th in the world and 163rd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 13,950.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
