The Republic of Krypton Nova is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gaea Ruhzohedan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.262 billion Novans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Novan economy, worth a remarkable 2,924 trillion helping hands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 205,085 helping hands, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, and the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat. Crime is totally unknown. Krypton Nova's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Old Religion.

Krypton Nova is ranked 1,840th in the world and 2nd in The LCRUA for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 28,169.86 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
