The Holy Empire of Neo-Cambria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rhodri of Gwynedd with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.034 billion human resources 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Machynlleth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cambrian economy, worth 145 trillion dolers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 140,534 dolers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 610,503 per year while the poor average 20,509, a ratio of 29.8 to 1.

People spend a lot on hair and nails, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the legal profession considers itself above the law, and global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Neo-Cambria of supplying extremist groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Cambria's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is ecclesiastic monetarism.

Neo-Cambria is ranked 60,562nd in the world and 2,875th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,334.48 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
