The Holy Domain of New vedan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Sacred Council with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.674 billion vedanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guana City. The average income tax rate is 38.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New vedanian economy, worth 286 trillion Edensias a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,940 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare vedanians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New vedan's national animal is the rockbiter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lucernism.

New vedan is ranked 85,893rd in the world and 13th in The Mystical Council for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,815.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
