The Dictatorship of NewBlackStation is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 222 million Oskoms enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 56.7%.

The thriving Oskomian economy, worth 13.2 trillion Military Grade Rounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 59,403 Military Grade Rounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NewBlackStation's national animal is the Anomalies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NewBlackStation is ranked 234,029th in the world and 7,101st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.08 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
