The Republic of New Bawkie 65 is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 177 million New Bawkie 65ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bawkie 65ian economy, worth 7.08 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,026 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, preservative-laden New Bawkie 65ian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime is a serious problem. New Bawkie 65's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Bawkie 65 is ranked 188,716th in the world and 341st in Bawkie for Lowest Crime Rates, with 45.63 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
