Ingentis Novus

Population3.567 billion



The Empire of Ingentis Novus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dominus with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.567 billion Ingentis Novusians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castellum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ingentis Novusian economy, worth 660 trillion Nomismata a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 185,244 Nomismata, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, airport security is provided by private companies, the entire entry for Ingentis Novus in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ingentis Novus's national animal is the tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Ingentis Novus is ranked 166,705th in the world and 3,816th in the West Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
