The Republic of NovaRain is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.006 billion NovaRainians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NovaRain Citadel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient NovaRainian economy, worth a remarkable 4,421 trillion Novas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 401,758 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, Kiwi populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. NovaRain's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NovaRain is ranked 1,527th in the world and 35th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 21,446.85 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
