The Republic of New Vivia And is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tim with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.24 billion New Vivia Andians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yogurt. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Vivia Andian economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 180,207 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, foreign envoys that want to visit New Vivia And now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vivia And's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Fire dancing.

New Vivia And is ranked 7,004th in the world and 25th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 97.01 Atheism Rate.
