A newb is the positive version of a n00b: A new nation in NationStates, which RPs well. The terms newb and n00b are both most commonly used in the Internet Relay Chat.

In sports-roleplaying, a newb is also a nation, which participates for the first time or stopped participating so long ago, that the rank is on the lowest level. The sports-community calls these teams 'unranked' or 'not ranking' despite the teams having the default newb-rank (often 150 or 200). It is very unlikely that newbs do well, but The Eagles Nest is a notable exception.
