The Unidad del Cono Sur of Nevbrejnovitz is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Mandrake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.513 billion Platinans 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buenos Aires. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Platinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion Platinan 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. Average income is an amazing 218,510 Platinan Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, vacationing Platinans expect to be treated as royalty, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Platinan Peso battlesuits, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. 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 Catus Felinus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secular.

Nevbrejnovitz is ranked 1,407th in the world and 4th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 216,761.94 Standard Monetary Units.
