The United Socialist States of New Schoeneberg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elected Great Leader Connor with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 1.724 billion New Schoenebergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gasometer. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Schoenebergian economy, worth 142 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 82,494 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, Elected Great Leader Connor's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Schoeneberg's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

New Schoeneberg is ranked 225,158th in the world and 7,757th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 6,517.06 Standard Monetary Units.
