The Sovereign Isle of Nova Zemlya is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Primer Ductus Alia Arxemet with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.079 billion Zemlyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthane. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nova Zemlyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,073 trillion drosses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,850 drosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, religious education is a new government priority, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown. Nova Zemlya's national animal is the aether eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Zemlya is ranked 13,023rd in the world and 297th in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
