The Commonwealth of Novegia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.873 billion Novegians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queningrad. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Novegian economy, worth 808 trillion boxings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,572 boxings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown. Novegia's national animal is the barn owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Novegia is ranked 4,866th in the world and 89th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 93.81 on the Human Development Index.
