The Confederacy of Nexonian States is a large, safe nation, renowned for its fear of technology, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 69 million Nexonian Statesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Nexonian Statesian economy, worth 902 billion Monos 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. 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 13,078 Monos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and tanks are being deployed to the Skandilundian border as part of "Operation Ironic Storm". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nexonian States's national animal is the Starman, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nexonian States is ranked 145,685th in the world and 6,424th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,029.29 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
