Novan Republic

The Allied States of Novan Republic is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 576 million Novan Republicians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Novan Republician economy, worth 30.7 trillion Casings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 53,296 Casings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Novan Republician athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novan Republic's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novan Republic is ranked 233,751st in the world and 40th in The Galactics Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
