The Bridge of New Terabithia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Bismarck with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.053 billion th are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient th economy, worth a remarkable 1,105 trillion Tianmarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,730 Tianmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), rumor has it that Supreme Leader Bismarck has won three lotteries in a row, a degree in Supreme Leader Bismarck Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Terabithia's national animal is the Direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Terabithia is ranked 10,839th in the world and 309th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.13 Years.
