The Lunar Lord of Novyy Stristia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Antifederal Commander Nikolas Strystinov with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.282 billion Novyy Stristians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novyy Striscovy. The average income tax rate is 8.9%.

The all-consuming Novyy Stristian economy, worth 756 trillion bolnishevs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 103,831 bolnishevs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, ghost regiments exist only on paper, drivers are told they're not staring at mobile phone screens enough, and political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Novyy Stristia's national animal is the maneating duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Novyy Stristia is ranked 40,504th in the world and 4th in Democritus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,353.15 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
