The Socialis Statum of Nova Babilonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Laurentius Hammurabi with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.163 billion latin-chaldeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria de Chaldeam. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient latin-chaldean economy, worth 129 trillion Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 111,297 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Babilonia's national animal is the de volucribus sphinge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Astrology.

Nova Babilonia is ranked 200,595th in the world and 1,009th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
