The Empire of Nea Komnenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Katerina Ibelinova with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.263 billion Komnenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Komnenian economy, worth 241 trillion Hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 191,575 Hyperpyrons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 919,838 per year while the poor average 23,298, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

Mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and governments opposing Nea Komnenia are beset by rebels. Crime is relatively low. Nea Komnenia's national animal is the Titanis, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nea Komnenia is ranked 12,929th in the world and 111th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.66 Whatever.
