The Godforsaken Republic of New Kvenland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by People's Commissary Tova Olthuis with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.237 billion New Kvenlanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brödstad. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kvenlander economy, worth a remarkable 2,113 trillion labor vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 159,646 labor vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kvenland's national animal is the caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sarkicism.

New Kvenland is ranked 1,038th in the world and 21st in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11,492.5 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
