The Legendary Land of Novaexus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aren Kerem with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.716 billion Novaexans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cassiopeia. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novaexusian economy, worth 250 trillion Stellars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,810 Stellars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, the Novaexus Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novaexus's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Astrolatry.

Novaexus is ranked 50,093rd in the world and 1,687th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,765.28 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
