The Sovereign Isle of Nova Zemlya is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Primer Ductus Alia Arxemet with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.505 billion Zemlyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthane. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nova Zemlyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,761 trillion drosses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,214 drosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Nova Zemlyan selfishness, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. Crime is totally unknown. Nova Zemlya's national animal is the aether eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Zemlya is ranked 258,010th in the world and 6,078th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.79 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
