The Lazarene Citizen of New Vedan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kamreon Dragargon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.941 billion vedanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guana City. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vedanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,318 trillion Edensias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 189,896 Edensias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who don't meet government health standards are whisked away never to be seen again, one does not simply walk into the tundra, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vedan's national animal is the rockbiter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lucernism.

New Vedan is ranked 32,644th in the world and 923rd in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 3.04 Weapons Per Person.
