The Holy Empire of Nuevo Urdir is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by José María 1 El Conquistador with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 2.069 billion Nuevo Urdirians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrilia. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nuevo Urdirian economy, worth 174 trillion Imperials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,133 Imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, newspapers are celebrating José María 1 El Conquistador saving over a million cats from trees, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuevo Urdir's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Culto a Santiago.

Nuevo Urdir is ranked 142,183rd in the world and 4,593rd in Osiris for Fattest Citizens, with 9.41 Obesity Rate.
