The Velikoye Knyazhestvo of Novgorod-Pskov is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lukas Boretsky with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.283 billion Novgorod-Pskovians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veliky Novgorod. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novgorod-Pskovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,028 trillion Novgorodian Rubles 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 124,192 Novgorodian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, Lukas Boretsky's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novgorod-Pskov's national animal is the Russian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Novgorodian Eastern Orthodoxy.

Novgorod-Pskov is ranked 71,046th in the world and 5th in The Goose Pond for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
