The Pale Shadow of New Old New New York is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Librarian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.695 billion Readers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beinecke Library. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Reading economy, worth a remarkable 9,192 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 290,017 Irish gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Weekly Reader, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Old New New York's national animal is the Weekly Reader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Old New New York is ranked 1,074th in the world and 4th in Philosophy 115 for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 90.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
