The Free Economic Zone of The New Las Vegas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Robert Edwin House with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.976 billion Vegas Citizens enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vegas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mr House guided economy, worth 618 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,670 Bottle Caps, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 443,163 per year while the poor average 43,628, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and the media seems excessively interested in what Robert Edwin House is wearing this season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Las Vegas's national animal is the Fiend, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Addictive Gambling.

The New Las Vegas is ranked 97,387th in the world and 1,778th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,608.04 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
