The Royal Kingdom of New Gilboa is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Silas Benjamin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.191 billion New Gilboans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shiloh. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Gilboan economy, worth a remarkable 8,873 trillion laurels a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 338,798 laurels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, all the playground's a stage for New Gilboan schoolchildren, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 548th in the world and 15th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.8 on the Human Development Index.
