The Kingdom of New Woking is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Matt Taggart with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.457 billion Woks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Johns. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Wokingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,446 trillion Great Woking Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,090 Great Woking Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new universal healthcare system has been dubbed Matt Taggart-care by its detractors, sentient AIs face their watery graves with a fixed smile, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime is totally unknown. New Woking's national animal is the mariguana, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Woking is ranked 172,654th in the world and 5th in Iveagh for Fattest Citizens, with 7.99 Obesity Rate.
