The Nomadic Peoples of Out of Town News is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.694 billion Out of Town Newsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Out of Town Newsian economy, worth 187 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,549 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, it's always rabbit season, and Out of Town News's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Out of Town News's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Out of Town News is ranked 161,328th in the world and 7th in Ghosts of Harvard Square for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
