The Eternal Crimson of Novovaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Havilar Balorfist with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.003 billion Novovarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varieale. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Novovarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,605 trillion Lucs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 178,346 Lucs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novovaria's national animal is the Wolverine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Calishism.

Novovaria is ranked 187,916th in the world and 6,470th in Osiris for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 13.22 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
