The Federación de Sudamérica of Nevbrejnovitz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marcelo Torcuato de Alvear with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.587 billion Sudaméricans 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buenos Aires. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sudamérican economy, worth a remarkable 2,346 trillion Sudamérican Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,650 Sudamérican Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationing Sudaméricans expect to be treated as royalty, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Sudamérican Peso battlesuits, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nevbrejnovitz's national animal is the Rufous hornero, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic.

Nevbrejnovitz is ranked 3,666th in the world and 9th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 7,401.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
