The Principality of Novis Orbus Librarium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Commandment Homura Novis with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 808 million Novisians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kagutsuchi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The powerhouse Novis Orbus Librariumian economy, worth 88.4 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 109,377 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 577,308 per year while the poor average 11,019, a ratio of 52.4 to 1.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Novis Orbus Librarium at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Novis Orbus Librarium's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novis Orbus Librarium is ranked 91,404th in the world and 1,517th in The East Pacific for Largest Populations, with 808 million Capita.
