The Republic of New Vivia And is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tim with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.122 billion New Vivia Andians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yogurt. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Vivia Andian economy, worth a remarkable 1,871 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,923 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 558,946 per year while the poor average 47,636, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

A shout of "stop in the name of the law!" is more of a request than an order, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Vivia And's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fire dancing.

New Vivia And is ranked 256,406th in the world and 346th in The Free Nations Region for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.92 percentage of bribes refused.
