The Principality of Neo Zeonic is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.225 billion Neo Zeonicians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The all-consuming Neo Zeonician economy, worth 123 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 100,989 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 348,256 per year while the poor average 21,437, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

The nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, a major religion has been named as Neo Zeonic's national religion, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and the sanitised and dull music festivals of Neo Zeonic are famed for their reasonable volume levels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Zeonic's national animal is the MS-06R-2 Zaku II, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Neo Zeonic is ranked 11,010th in the world and 24th in The United Federations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,248.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
