The United Socialist States of New Schoeneberg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elected Great Leader Connor with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 2.149 billion New Schoenebergians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — 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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Schoenebergian economy, worth 201 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 93,963 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, organ donation is compulsory, televisions are often seized to pay for overdue television license fees, and nations that kill a New Schoenebergian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is Secularism.

New Schoeneberg is ranked 209,905th in the world and 7,127th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.57 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
