The Borderlands of New Petra is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ali Oseram with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.789 billion New Petrans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Heap. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Petran economy, worth 104 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,592 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Petra's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Petra is ranked 33,330th in the world and 467th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 73.36 on the Human Development Index.
