The Grand Principality of Novgorod-Pskov is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lukas Boretskaya with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.775 billion Novgorod-Pskovians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veliky Novgorod. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Novgorod-Pskovian economy, worth 530 trillion Novgorodian Rubles 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 111,120 Novgorodian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novgorod-Pskov's national animal is the Russian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Novgorodian Eastern Orthodoxy.

Novgorod-Pskov is ranked 156,737th in the world and 582nd in Europe for Largest Black Market, with 111 billion Standard Monetary Units.
