The Holy Empire of New Bedre is a huge, safe nation, ruled by The One Lord God with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 857 million New Bedreans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midzenis. The average income tax rate is 19.6%.

The frighteningly efficient New Bedrean economy, worth 113 trillion Bedridden Euros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,254 Bedridden Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, New Bedre's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Midzenis, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Bedre's national animal is the common flying dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Bedre is ranked 180,790th in the world and 7,530th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 416.9 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
