The Republic of Novum Futurum is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Hammer with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, rampant corporate plagiarism, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.389 billion Futurumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Spirituality and Industry not funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The large but underdeveloped Futurumian economy, worth 188 trillion Thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 55,686 Thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,748 per year while the poor average 12,036, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

Separatists boast glistening offices on Novum Futurum City's Embassy Row, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and most ambassadors from Novum Futurum retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Novum Futurum's national animal is the Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novum Futurum is ranked 57,298th in the world and 2,842nd in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,625.27 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
