Novian Republics

Population8.15 billion

LeaderChancellor Ishimoto


The Confederacy of Novian Republics is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Ishimoto with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.15 billion Novians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekyo. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novian economy, worth 866 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,271 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novian Republics's national animal is the eagle-owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novian Republics is ranked 12,588th in the world and 76th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,275.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
