The Internet Forum of New Neros is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dread Lord Neros with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.954 billion New Nerosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Series of Tubes. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Nerosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,268 trillion Ners a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,643 Ners, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the study of medicine is popular throughout New Neros, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown. New Neros's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Neros is ranked 21,544th in the world and 4th in Etharia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.25 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
