The Empire of Nea Komnenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Katerina Ibelinova with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.418 billion Komnenians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Komnenian economy, worth 642 trillion Hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 265,758 Hyperpyrons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,260,939 per year while the poor average 33,054, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

It's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Katerina Ibelinova's childhood, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the newest shade developed by Nea Komnenia's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nea Komnenia's national animal is the Titanis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nea Komnenia is ranked 56,146th in the world and 387th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,829.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
