The Greater Socialist Republic of Nova Licentia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Julian Edgeman with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The cynical population of 12.565 billion Nova Licentians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Freedom. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The thriving Nova Licentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion novamarks 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 100,698 novamarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bars are packed at all hours, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Licentia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religeon.

Nova Licentia is ranked 62,196th in the world and 24th in Greater Dienstad for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.14 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
