The Syndicated Corporations of Nedea is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Drake Fairtrade with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.975 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, 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 9,808 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 377,602 Kredits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,196,662 per year while the poor average 30,684, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

The line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, Drake Fairtrade's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nedea's national animal is the Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nedea is ranked 19,239th in the world and 6th in New Coalition of Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
