The Commonwealth of Novegia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.523 billion Novegians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queningrad. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Novegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,028 trillion boxings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,690 boxings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Novegia's national animal is the barn owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Novegia is ranked 90,939th in the world and 345th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 20.54 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
