The Novium Empire of ElectriKM is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Her Darkest Majesty Astria Maculi with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, smutty television, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.296 billion Novians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starfire City. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient ElectriKMian economy, worth a remarkable 1,674 trillion Noviums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 266,011 Noviums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Novians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Her Darkest Majesty Astria Maculi to meetings with foreign heads of state, ElectriKMian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElectriKM's national animal is the Nebulous Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Noviism.

ElectriKM is ranked 19,289th in the world and 1,051st in Balder for Smartest Citizens, with 63.91 quips per hour.
