The Borderlands of New Petra is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ali Oseram with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.915 billion New Petrans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Heap. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse New Petran economy, worth 111 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,331 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Petra's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
