The Empire of Nea Videssos is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kharilaos XVI Tarchaneiotes with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.536 billion Nea Videssians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nea Videssos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The strong Nea Videssian economy, worth 533 trillion Hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 55,902 Hyperpyrons, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Nea Videssos's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Otokonoko Worship.

Nea Videssos is ranked 32,612th in the world and 1st in Game of Thrones for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 107.97 on the Hayek Index.
