The Empire of Nea Videssos is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kharilaos XVI Tarchaneiotes with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.842 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 7.8%.

The strong Nea Videssian economy, worth 379 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. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 55,408 Hyperpyrons, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines. 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 144,739th in the world and 19th in Game of Thrones for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
