The Republic of Covvia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hilda Zwaagman with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.035 billion Covvians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jargoth. The average income tax rate is 23.0%.

The strong Covvian economy, worth 501 trillion Coveys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 62,419 Coveys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covvia's national animal is the White deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Covvia is ranked 109,665th in the world and 31st in Official European Union for Most Developed, scoring 54.71 on the Human Development Index.
