The Final Dawn of New Kowloon Bay is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Josephine Windham with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.766 billion Kowloonis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Miltonford. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient New Kowloon Bayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,368 trillion Bay Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 287,238 Bay Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The NKBBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, gossip magazines have pictures of Josephine Windham sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, military spending is on the increase, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Kowloon Bay's national animal is the Spotted Organic Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kowlooni Christianity.

New Kowloon Bay is ranked 21,396th in the world and 132nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,421.53 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
