The Kingdom of New Wish is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mixcal with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.534 billion New Wishians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skycrest. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Wishian economy, worth 250 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 163,014 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, and couples wishing to marry spend months at the circus trying to learn acrobatics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Wish's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Kings Cult.

New Wish is ranked 236,299th in the world and 886th in 10000 Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
