The Syndicated Corporations of Nedea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Drake Fairtrade with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, feral children, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.398 billion Nedeans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DarkHaven. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nedean economy, worth a remarkable 7,088 trillion Kredits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 365,407 Kredits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,156,977 per year while the poor average 28,683, a ratio of 75.2 to 1.

Chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Nedean restaurants, museum employees look down on short people, the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nedea's national animal is the Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nedea is ranked 8,145th in the world and 3rd in New Coalition of Nations for Most Secular, with 94.43 Atheism Rate.
