The Free Land of Nostovya is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.604 billion Nostovyans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nostovyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,862 trillion comforts 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 298,101 comforts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Nostovya's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nostovya is ranked 99th in the world and 2nd in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 41,528.65 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
