|Leader||Primer Ductus Alia Arxemet|
The Sovereign Isle of Nova Zemlya is a gargantuan, efficient 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 11.679 billion Zemlyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthane. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Nova Zemlyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,015 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 reasonably common. Average income is 86,909 drosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, airport security is provided by private companies, Primer Ductus Alia Arxemet has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime is totally unknown. Nova Zemlya's national animal is the aether eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
