Novian Republics

Population3.546 billion

LeaderChancellor Christiansen


The Confederacy of Novian Republics is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Christiansen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.546 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villic. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novian economy, worth 422 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,192 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

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 capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novian Republics's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novian Republics is ranked 22,534th in the world and 116th in Forest for Highest Average Incomes, with 119,192.73 Standard Monetary Units.
