The Republic of Neldessica is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Elden with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 35.085 billion Neldans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vellis. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but sluggish Neldan economy, worth a remarkable 1,643 trillion gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,831 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Neldessica flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Neldessica, the Neldan Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neldessica's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Neldessica is ranked 159,977th in the world and 4,417th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 16.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
