The Imperial Colonial State of Nova Marsica is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lucius Fraucus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.625 billion Nova Marsicans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marruvium. The average income tax rate is 5.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nova Marsican economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,434 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, CDs are regularly copy-protected, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nova Marsica's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Paganism.

Nova Marsica is ranked 159,920th in the world and 4th in The Empire of Common Territories for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
