The Free Land of New South Hope is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dash with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate population of 2.398 billion New South Hopeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newton City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient New South Hopean economy, worth 380 trillion newtons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,791 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New South Hope's national animal is the caracal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New South Hope is ranked 235,652nd in the world and 8,133rd in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -11.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
