The Federal Republic of New Pontiac is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 448 million New Pontians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Federal District of Joliet. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Pontician economy, worth 38.8 trillion Pontian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,575 Pontian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Pontiac's national animal is the Pontian Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Pontiac is ranked 58,708th in the world and 2,285th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,625.39 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
