The Commonwealth of Novagentum is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.861 billion Novagentumians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanderson. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Novagentumian economy, worth 295 trillion dollars 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 103,292 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novagentum's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Novagentum is ranked 10,012th in the world and 277th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 109 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
