The other half being that yes,「である」can often be replaced with 「の」, as @tsuyoshi points out.

Thanks, I guess that was really the crux of my question. So the two「である」are completely different.

comment How do I say “I am the best” ? の,は or が and 私 or 俺?

comment What's the purpose of な in なのに?
That would explain why I had been somewhat confused in general by the first sentence. It makes much more sense when you split up the の and the に like that. I guess I didn't realize there was a non-grief のに.
