The Element of Ne is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.446 billion Neans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.6%.

The all-consuming Nean economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,419 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Nean Embarrassments, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, Leader can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ne's national animal is the Elephant, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ne is ranked 101,490th in the world and 3rd in Iveagh for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,424.84 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
