The Federal Union of Nueva Babilonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Bobilberth Díaz with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.819 billion Babilonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Depito. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Neo-Babilonian economy, worth 570 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 38,483 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, atheists on vacation find Protestant Reich Church's scriptures make useful doorstops, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nueva Babilonia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Reich Church.

Nueva Babilonia is ranked 11,548th in the world and 2nd in The Equator for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 83.61 Effective Tax Rate.
