The Royal Kingdom of New Gilboa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Silas Benjamin with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.517 billion New Gilboans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shiloh. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Gilboan economy, worth a remarkable 8,080 trillion laurels a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 329,587 laurels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A commonwealth of equal nations recognises that New Gilboa is a bit more equal than the others, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. Crime is totally unknown. New Gilboa's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

New Gilboa is ranked 207,956th in the world and 2,115th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -32.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
