The Iberian Federation of Nova Espana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ferreira with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.272 billion Nova Espanons 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisboa. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Nova Espanan economy, worth 175 trillion Escudoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,129 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, Nova Espanan actors literally work from cradle to grave, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Espana's national animal is the Iberian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nova Espana is ranked 32,437th in the world and 458th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,075.77 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
