The Confederacy of Novian Republics is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Ishimoto with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.818 billion Novians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekyo. The average income tax rate is 80.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Novian economy, worth 967 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,770 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Chancellor Ishimoto's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', there's nothing more rock-and-roll than absolute sobriety, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and light entertainment isn't dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novian Republics's national animal is the eagle-owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novian Republics is ranked 287,721st in the world and 266th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -263.81 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
