The Empire of Nea Komnenia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Katerina Ibelinova with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.13 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, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Komnenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 trillion Hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 292,374 Hyperpyrons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,530,505 per year while the poor average 29,964, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Valyria, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', reddish-brown is the new black, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nea Komnenia's national animal is the Titanis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nea Komnenia is ranked 4,711th in the world and 105th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 131.73 quips per hour.
