The Your Mom Lmao of Novostia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Simon Holten with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.256 billion Novostians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novisbourg. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novostian economy, worth 219 trillion Novots a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,289 Novots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, third world countries are rich in "I Love Novisbourg" t-shirts, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novostia's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Froge.

Novostia is ranked 12,218th in the world and 49th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 88.92 on the Human Development Index.
