The Dictatorship of Novoridium is a large, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 95 million Novoridians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.2%.

The very strong Novoridiumian economy, worth 7.08 trillion Russian rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 74,571 Russian rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,274 per year while the poor average 16,488, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

People choose marriage partners by buying a lottery ticket, the army's shirt ninja are the most feared assassins in the region, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novoridium's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novoridium is ranked 50,311th in the world and 2nd in Western conference for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,987.32 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
