The Kingdom of Nova Zealandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HM Queen Elizabeth II of Eden with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.661 billion Nova Zealandians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auckland. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Nova Zealandian economy, worth a remarkable 8,741 trillion Eden Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 385,771 Eden Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
Armed police units patrol the roads late at night, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nova Zealandia's national animal is the Dragoni Nova Zealandia, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Anglican Church of Eden.
