The United Socialist States of New Schoeneberg is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 831 million New Schoenebergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gasometer. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Schoenebergian economy, worth 68.3 trillion Euros 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 82,188 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, gambling is outlawed, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Schoeneberg's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Schoeneberg is ranked 6,920th in the world and 191st in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,289.92 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
