The Empire of New Nexon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Stanley V with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.624 billion Nexonans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexon City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nexonan economy, worth a remarkable 7,587 trillion Nexonan Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 601,050 Nexonan Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,599,801 per year while the poor average 88,379, a ratio of 29.4 to 1.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Nexon's national animal is the bangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money.

New Nexon is ranked 20,328th in the world and 1,275th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 83 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
