The Islamic Republic of Novaros is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ali Hafiz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.051 billion Novaars are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novapolis. The average income tax rate is 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarosian economy, worth 116 trillion Novalis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,451 Novalis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novaros's national animal is the Black Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Novaros is ranked 123,017th in the world and 290th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 932.25 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
