LeaderImperator Homura Novis


The Imperial Sovereignty of Novis Orbus Librarium is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Homura Novis with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.223 billion Librarians 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 International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kagutsuchi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.0%.

The all-consuming Novis Orbus Librariumian economy, worth 138 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,854 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 550,087 per year while the poor average 13,334, a ratio of 41.3 to 1.

The homeless more often beg for mercy than money, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and most citizens in Novis Orbus Librarium are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Novis Orbus Librarium's national animal is the Dove, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Novis Orbus Librarium is ranked 119,426th in the world and 6,046th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 16 Effective Tax Rate.
