The State of Neo-Western East Korea is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Beom Dae with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.265 billion Neo-Western East Koreans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bunker-City of Omiskan. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Neo-Western East Korean economy, worth a remarkable 2,791 trillion Cyber Bats 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 amazing 445,491 Cyber Bats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, Beom Dae's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Western East Korea's national animal is the Nuclear Combusting Crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Neo-Western East Korea is ranked 14,405th in the world and 4th in Esvanovia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,751.81 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
