The Federation of Newrun is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.385 billion Newrunians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newrun City. The average income tax rate is 22.1%.
The very strong Newrunian economy, worth 125 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,954 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newrun's national animal is the Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
