The Holy Domain of New vedan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Sacred Council with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.518 billion vedanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guana City. The average income tax rate is 39.7%.

The strong New vedanian economy, worth 268 trillion Edensias a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,261 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, the term "Native Vedanian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New vedan's national animal is the rockbiter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lucernism.

New vedan is ranked 36,333rd in the world and 11th in The Mystical Council for Most Influential, scoring 527 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
