Novum Syndicate

Population2.037 billion

LeaderThe Conglomerate


The Republic of Novum Syndicate is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Conglomerate with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.037 billion Novum Syndicateans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syndicate. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Novum Syndicatean economy, worth 180 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 88,596 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novum Syndicate's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novum Syndicate is ranked 107,391st in the world and 3,375th in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 267.78 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
