The Jewish state of Neo-Judia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand tsar yaakov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.854 billion Judeans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Judean economy, worth 234 trillion Wawtishes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,565 Wawtishes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Grand tsar yaakov's portrait, and religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Judia's national animal is the Palestine sun hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Church of Jerusalem.

Neo-Judia is ranked 76,359th in the world and 10th in Third Cynglish Empire for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 196,456 Standard Monetary Units.
