The Principality of Novo Razcon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Lazaro Le Roi I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.802 billion Razanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romata. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novo Razconian economy, worth 940 trillion Razanian leus a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,063 Razanian leus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Novo Razcon's mid-life crisis, international tensions are high as Novo Razcon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novo Razcon's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unionism.

Novo Razcon is ranked 191,704th in the world and 12th in Elvarya for Least Corrupt Governments, with 69.5 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
