The Democratic Republic of Neworva is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Neo Davis with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.29 billion Neworvans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Social Policy, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ducco City. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Neworvan economy, worth 130 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,534 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Neo Davis's questionably sane new coalition partners, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Neworva's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is NONE.

Neworva is ranked 119,922nd in the world and 4,208th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 15.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
