The United Federation of New Vihenia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Vesstemonya Theleavanya Valeria Shelrin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 20.674 billion New Vihenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiddeleindergh. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving New Vihenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,897 trillion Vihenian Rubels a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,790 Vihenian Rubels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vihenia's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various.

New Vihenia is ranked 213,267th in the world and 6,222nd in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -230.71 on the Hayek Index.
