The Federal Republic of Nova Kobol is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Gaius Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 966 million Nova Kobolians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New New Caprica City. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nova Kobolian economy, worth 112 trillion Cubits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,058 Cubits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military struggles with recruitment, international tensions are high as Nova Kobol threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and heavily subsidised Nova Kobolian baskets litter the streets of the South Pacific. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Kobol's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Kobol is ranked 185,726th in the world and 3,449th in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 40.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
