The Empire of Neo-liberal Oppression is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Leopold III with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.517 billion Neo-liberal Oppressionians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corporate HQ. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Neo-liberal Oppressionian economy, worth a remarkable 2,953 trillion Credits 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 Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 280,861 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,195,051 per year while the poor average 9,129, a ratio of 240 to 1.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Neo-liberal Oppression's national animal is the Slave, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fundamentalist Calvinism.

Neo-liberal Oppression is ranked 940th in the world and 7th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15,247.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
