The Schizophrenic states of New Bismuthium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Burrito Mussolini with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, soft-spoken computers, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.103 billion Vismuttis 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 Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgard II. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vismuttian economy, worth 417 trillion Chicken wings 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 198,506 Chicken wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Vismuttian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, military funding has been stripped back, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is relatively low. New Bismuthium's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Holy flying blue platypus.

New Bismuthium is ranked 12,183rd in the world and 1st in The Guardians of Asgaard for Most Developed, scoring 88.13 on the Human Development Index.
