The Holy Empire of Nuevo Urdir is a massive, safe nation, ruled by José María 1 El Conquistador with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.347 billion Nuevo Urdirians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magrita. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nuevo Urdirian economy, worth 210 trillion Imperials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 89,554 Imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, and nerds everywhere are rejoicing as they are reunited with their computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuevo Urdir's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Culto a Santiago.

Nuevo Urdir is ranked 130,569th in the world and 5,049th in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 179.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
