The Dominion of New Currents is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 402 million Currentians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Massacuie. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Currentian economy, worth 39.6 trillion pawns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,406 pawns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 298,339 per year while the poor average 25,240, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Currents's national animal is the Star Platinum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Currents is ranked 179,855th in the world and 282nd in Karma for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.09 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
