The Free City of Nova Universo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mayor Wihann Cronier with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.904 billion Nova Universistoj enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Universisto economy, worth 513 trillion valutoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,611 valutoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Nova Universisto, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, and political spontaneity takes a lot of planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Universo's national animal is the flying otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nova Universo is ranked 232,903rd in the world and 5th in Union of Nova Universo for Most Devout, with 9.03 prayers per hour.
