The Free Land of New South Hope is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Dash with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 774 million New South Hopeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken 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 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New South Hopean economy, worth 83.2 trillion newtons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,451 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, edutainment video games are taking New South Hope's students to the next level, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New South Hope is ranked 133,738th in the world and 5,132nd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,061.82 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
