The Borderlands of Newtown I is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 678 million Newtown Iians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Bean. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Newtown Iian economy, worth 61.1 trillion Beans 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 90,045 Beans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Newtown I's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Newtown I is ranked 198,055th in the world and 6,796th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,658.51 Standard Monetary Units.
