The United States of Novus America is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Franklin with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.519 billion Americans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 2,907 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 341,238 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, ghost regiments exist only on paper, the news is showing footage of President Franklin bullying an old man to the point of tears, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novus America's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novus America is ranked 1,031st in the world and 45th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 12,233.8 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
