The State of New Horensian Kingdom is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sparta I with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.88 billion Horensians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrasfield. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Horensian economy, worth a remarkable 2,861 trillion Horensian Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 222,160 Horensian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nine out of ten citizens of New Horensian Kingdom answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Horensian Kingdom's national animal is the Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Horensian Kingdom is ranked 116,866th in the world and 132nd in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,504.86 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
