The Free Economic Zone of Nevv Vegas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Robert Edwin House with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.015 billion New Vegans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Strip. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The very strong Nevv Vegasian economy, worth 137 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 68,349 Bottle Caps, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, Robert Edwin House's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, citizens must pay to enjoy Nevv Vegas's pristine beaches, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nevv Vegas's national animal is the Securitron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Nevv Vegas is ranked 95,644th in the world and 1st in New Atlantis for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
