The Reunited land of New Vedan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Kamreon Dragargon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.265 billion vedanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guana City. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vedanian economy, worth 861 trillion Edensias 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 163,604 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Vedan's national animal is the rockbiter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucernism.

New Vedan is ranked 16,208th in the world and 749th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7,007.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
