The Republic of New Bawkie 371 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.273 billion New Bawkie 371ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 31.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bawkie 371ian economy, worth 231 trillion pesos 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 54,285 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bawkie 371's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Bawkie 371 is ranked 206,989th in the world and 552nd in Bawkie for Highest Drug Use, scoring 30.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
