The Empire of Neue Coolidge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by some random guy on the street with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.675 billion people are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SCP-001. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Neue Coolidgean economy, worth 110 trillion redacteds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Pizza Delivery, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,130 redacteds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, and 90% of active duty NCAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neue Coolidge's national animal is the raving lunatic, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is onionism.

Neue Coolidge is ranked 131,129th in the world and 5,527th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 52.73 on the Human Development Index.
