The Federal Republic of Neornith is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.641 billion Avans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aviena. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.4%.

The powerhouse Neornithian economy, worth a remarkable 1,110 trillion anks 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. 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 81,407 anks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 239,920 per year while the poor average 21,735, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Neornith's national animal is the raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neornith is ranked 29,885th in the world and 18th in The Local Cluster for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
