The Federal Republic of Nova Kobol is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Gaius Baltar with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.427 billion Nova Kobolians 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 Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New New Caprica City. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Kobolian economy, worth 167 trillion Cubits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,171 Cubits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and war vets look after war animals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Kobol's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Kobol is ranked 132,464th in the world and 1,966th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.43 billion Capita.
