The Empire of Naypyidaw is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.727 billion Naypyidawians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The all-consuming Naypyidawian economy, worth a remarkable 1,634 trillion golds 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. 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 impressive 103,907 golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 375,077 per year while the poor average 20,563, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Naypyidaw's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Naypyidaw is ranked 70,231st in the world and 8th in Albion for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 3,509.56 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
