The Federation of New welmarica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rudolf Schmidt with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.468 billion New welmaricans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faywald City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The very strong New welmarican economy, worth 111 trillion Welmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 75,932 Welmarks, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, the fattest folk in New welmarica look to be the happiest ones, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New welmarica's national animal is the Condor, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Atheism.

New welmarica is ranked 81,411th in the world and 10th in United States for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,954.2 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
