The Rogue Nation of New Confusionland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 938 million New Confusionlandians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 34.8%.

The all-consuming New Confusionlandian economy, worth 76.8 trillion bitcoins 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 81,890 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, aides are afraid to ask if Leader wants a cup of tea or coffee, burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, and citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Confusionland's national animal is the pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Confusionland is ranked 121,974th in the world and 26th in The Norwegian Region Legion for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
