The Democratic Republic of Noovistian is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 475 million Noovistianians 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Noovistianian economy, worth 29.3 trillion STUPID Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 61,592 STUPID Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, and almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noovistian's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noovistian is ranked 208,047th in the world and 3rd in STUPID for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.04 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
