The Kingdom of New Basconia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rey Felipe II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.072 billion Vascoes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Basconian economy, worth 121 trillion Binomoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,077 Binomoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, Big Belly is watching you, skateparks can be found in every city, and money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Basconia's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Iglesia Ortodoxa.

New Basconia is ranked 23,752nd in the world and 12th in Callista for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 226.96 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
