The Lazarene Citizen of New Vedan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Kamreon Dragargon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.635 billion vedanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guana City. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vedanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,229 trillion Edensias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 185,294 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lobster tastes best when it is red, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vedan's national animal is the rockbiter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucernism.

New Vedan is ranked 16,222nd in the world and 673rd in Lazarus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 15.87 Bank.
