The Matriarchy of Neos Realm is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protector Neopolitan I with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.955 billion Neonians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tomsk. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neonian economy, worth 296 trillion Eurasian Black Liens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,623 Eurasian Black Liens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neos Realm's national animal is the Eurasian Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neos Realm is ranked 222,279th in the world and 5,612th in the Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 155.91 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
