The Social Republic of Novella Islands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edmund Dell with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.111 billion Novellans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novella City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Novellan economy, worth a remarkable 1,159 trillion Novelles 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 189,666 Novelles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Novellan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novella Islands's national animal is the Eternal Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novella Islands is ranked 65,712th in the world and 40th in International Democratic Union for Most Income Equality, scoring 53.02 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
